In semi-final one, Yohan Blake took off and blasted the field, winning in 9.95. Walter Dix caught the field and pushed through for second in 10.05. A false start was charged to Dwain Chambers, European Champion, and Britain's dq nightmare continues!

In semi-final two, Usain Bolt gets out and runs 10.05, looking great! In second was France's Christophe Lemaitre, who ran 10.11.

In semi-final three, Kim Collins, the 2003 World Champion, won here in 10.08, while Nesta Carter was second in 10.16.

So, my final picks for the Men's 100 meters: Bolt, Blake, Lemaitre, Dix to spoil.
