100m national record holder Ferdinand Omanyala equalled the national record as he qualified for the semi-finals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Omanyala clocked 10.01 which also equalled his personnel best in finishing third in heat one won by Canada’s Andre de Grasse.

Omanyala was the lone ranger for Kenya in the 100m heats after Mark Otieno was suspended from the competition after earlier on testing positive for a banned substance Saturday.

In the last edition held in Rio de Janeiro Brazil Kenya claimed 13 medals.
