Zimbabwe's 100 metres athlete Ngonidzashe Makusha progress to the next round Athletics-World championships men's 100m after clocking an impressive 10.31 minutes for the men's 100 metres heats in Daegu, South Korea.

Makusha was just 0.21 minutes behind the world champion Usain Bolt who signalled that reports of his vulnerability might be exaggerated when he stormed to the quickest time in the first round of the 100 metres heats at the World Championships.

Another Zimbabwean Gabriel Mvumvure failed to progress after clocking 10.63, he came 44th.

The double world and Olympic sprint champion served up by far the most dominant victory in a time of 10.10 seconds while clearly easing up over the last 10 metres.




After a season less dominant than the previous three, some former champions and absent rivals have been suggesting that Bolt might actually be beatable in the blue-riband sprint in Daegu.

Two other Jamaicans, Michael Frater and Nesta Carter, both won their heats in 10.26, while Zimbabwe's in form Ngonidzashe Makusha also progressed (10.31).
