Cayman sprinter Kemar Hyman’s 100m time of 10.34 seconds on Saturday fell short of qualifying for the semifinals Sunday at the Olympic Games in Rio.
Hyman, 26, who ran in Round 1, finished well behind the qualifying cut-off time of 10.20 seconds. The top finishers were Justin Gatlin of the United States (10.01), Ben Youssef Meite of the Ivory Coast (10.03), Andre De Grasse of Canada (10.04) and Usain Bolt of Jamaica (10.07).
Hyman tied with two others for 45th place out of 69 sprinters. His personal best on the 100 meters, according to the International Association of Athletics Federations, was 9.95 seconds in Madrid in 2012. This was Hyman’s second Olympics; he competed for Cayman in the 2012 London Games.
Cayman’s final athlete to compete in Rio is Ronald Forbes, 31, who will compete in the 110 meter hurdles Monday. This is Forbes’s third Olympics.
