Ghanaian athlete, Benjamin Azamati has qualified for the semi-final of the men's 100 metres race at the 2022 Commonwealth Games after coming first heat 7.

Azamati finished first in the Heats with a time of 10.19 sub-seconds to advance to the semis in the Men’s 100m dash.

Despite having a slow start the Ghanaian managed to beat off competition from Welsh athlete Jeremiah Azu and Bangladesh runner I. Rahman who finished second and third respectively.

Azamati’s time of 10.19 sub-seconds was below what he did at the 2022 World Athletics Championships where he finished the heats at a time of 10.189 sub-seconds and still failed to progress to the next round.

Azamati would come up in the Semi-finals on Wednesday, August 3rd where he would face some of the finest athletes at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
