BRISBANE – South African sprinters Clarence Munyai and Anaso Jobodwana sailed through their qualifying heats in the men’s 200m on Tuesday at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Munyai was off first in heat six and won in 20.95 seconds.

“I just did enough to get to the semis. It’s a fast track, a bit like London so today was all about cruise control and be ready for the semi,” said Munyai.

Jobodwana, had a tight hamstring going into the race but showed no effects as he crossed the line in 20.89.

“I did a stupid thing by getting to Gold Coast at 5am and then hitting the track at 10pm. I felt my hamstring was very tight but luckily I didn’t feel it at all in the heat, so I’m into the semi’s and we’ll take it from there,” said Jobodwana.
