Gemili flies in Moscow
Adam Gemili shattered his personal best in the heats of the 200 metres at the World Championships in Moscow.
The 19-year-old clocked 20.17 seconds, taking 0.13 secs off his previous best, despite easing down at the finish as he comfortably won his heat.
Team-mates James Ellington and Delano Williams also progressed to tonight's semi-finals.
Gemili finished more than half a second ahead of Isiah Young in second, the American who has run 19.86secs this summer.
Ellington also won his heat in 20.55, while Williams, the 19-year-old from the Turks and Caicos Islands, competing in a Great Britain vest for the first time, was second behind a cantering Usain Bolt, whose training group he will link up with in the autumn, in 20.72.
Gemili, though, the former footballer who could have been turning out for Dagenham and Redbridge at Scunthorpe this weekend had he not switched to athletics, was particularly impressive.
His run put him fifth on the British all-time list behind John Regis, Christian Malcolm, Linford Christie and Darren Campbell and a sub 20-second clocking could be on the cards for tonight.
He said: "It was a good run, I'm very pleased with how it went. I'm not looking to run a specific time, I just want to qualify for the final, but if I were to run under 20 seconds I would be over the moon.
"Training's been going well, but I just had to go out and execute. I was surprised. I know I could run 20.30 which was my previous PB, but I didn't quite believe it. I had to look across the track to check. When I realised it was me I was over the moon."
Gemili was the joint fastest qualifier for the semi-finals with South African Anaso Jobodwana.
Ellington, who watched Gemili's race from the broadcast interview area, branded his time "ridiculous".
"I was taking the glory for the moment and then I saw that time and was like, 'Jesus, I've got to step up again'," he said.
Williams, the world junior champion, battled with Bolt down the home straight before the Jamaican took the victory in 20.66.
Bolt acted like a caring elder brother after the race, shouting at Williams to hurry up through the press mixed zone to get on with his warm down.
Williams said: "After watching my team-mates qualify I felt that spirit and after watching Gemili run a 20.17, I mean, the Brits, we look really, really strong for the future. We're only 19.
"I had a bit of a joke with Usain. He's been motivating me through all of this, so thank you to him.
"I wasn't really trying to beat him because he would just probably have turned it on. I was just taking it really easy and doing my thing. It's been great running in a GB vest."
Bolt, looking for a seventh world title after his 100m victory on Sunday, said he felt "good".
"I had a few days to recover, I'm feeling all right," he said. "I'm just trying to do my targets through the rounds and I'll be all right."
Meanwhile, Chris O'Hare timed his finish to perfection to book his place in the 1500 metres final.
The 22-year-old held his form down the home straight to finish in fourth place, with the top five advancing automatically.
The Edinburgh athlete was much improved from his heat, which he only just scraped through, and crossed the line in three minutes 43.58 seconds.
