JOHANNESBURG – South Africa is looking increasingly unlikely to come home with silverware from the IAAF World Championships in Doha after another disappointing night in Qatar.
Short-sprint hurdler Antonio Alkana provided a glimmer of hope when he marched through to the semi-final of his specialist event.
The South African 110m hurdles record-holder made it into the semi crossing the line in third place in his heat with a time of 13.41 seconds. Antonio finished behind Olympic and world champion Omar Mcleod of Jamaica who clocked the second-fastest time of the heats winning the race in 13.17.
