Gardner cruises 10.90, advances to 100-meter dash final at Rio Olympic Games!

English-GardnerEastern High School graduate English Gardner ran 10.90 in Saturday evening’s semifinals to advance to the final of the 100-meter dash at the Rio Olympics.

The final is later Saturday evening.

Results of the semifinals are here.

Six of the eight qualifiers ran between 10.88 and 10.90 in the semis and the two other qualifiers – the non-auto qualifiers – ran 10.94 and 10.96. So all eight qualifiers ran between 10.88 and 10.96, which should make for a crazy final.

Gardner will be in lane 7 for the final, just to the right of two-time defending Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

Gardner is seeking to become the first South Jersey woman in history to win an Olympic track medal.
