Despite finishing fourth in his heat on Tuesday, Sean Safo-Antwi qualified for the men’s 100m semi-finals.

The Ghanaian struggled in heat 10, but his time of 10.33 seconds earned him a spot in Wednesday’s semi-finals.

He joins fellow countryman Benjamin Azamati, who advanced to the semi-finals on Tuesday morning.

Safo-Antwi, 31, admitted he needed to work on his start before Wednesday’s race.

“I stumbled, came out the blocks, I hit the ground and I started chasing. I couldn’t quite pick up speed because when I stumbled, it didn’t pick up a good race. So hopefully there’s enough to qualify for the semi-final. We see what goes from there,” Safo-Antwi told Ghanaian reporters in Birmingham.

“I’m excited [to qualify for the semi-finals], but I got a lot to fix. I need to fix it, so I’ll come back and fix it for the semi-final.”

He was part of the 4x100m relay team that finished fifth at the World Athletics Championships in the United States last month, setting a new national record in the process.

Safo-Antwi helped Ghana win gold in the 4x100m relay at the 2019 African Games in Rabat, Morocco.
