Kristina Knott will enter the final day but Trenten Beram will not, as the two suffered contrasting fates in the 200m event of the 2018 Asian Games Athletics Competition, Tuesday evening at the GBK – Main Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Knott clocked in at 23.65 seconds during the second semifinals of the event to qualify through time. Her time is good for seventh.
India’s Dutee Chand was ahead of the pack with 23.00 seconds, while Bahrain’s Edidiong Odiong and China’s Lingwei Kong finished with 23.01 and 23.02 seconds respectively to round out the top three.
Prior to this, Knott posted a season-best time of 23.45 seconds in finishing third in the second heat of the qualifiers.
The 23-year-old Creative Writing graduate at the University of Miami in United States blazed her way in Lane 5 to improve on her previous season best of 23.65. Her personal best is 23.23.
The same could not be said about two-time SEA Games gold medalist Beram.
Beram finished in 10th place to fall out of the top eight in the semifinals, clocking in at 21.26 seconds – 0.91 seconds behind the pace-setting Yuki Koire of Japan and 0.36 behind eighth-placed Ge Bie of China.
During the first round, Beram placed third with a time of 21.12 seconds to qualify for the semifinals set in the evening. Beram’s personal best is 20.84 seconds, and his season best time is 20.96 seconds.
