At the Bislett Games, the ASICS athlete finished fourth behind Olympic 200-meter champion Andre De Grasse (10.15s), then a few days later, she won the 100-meter race at the Paris Diamond League (10.25s)-1.6m/s. After the preliminary round concludes at noon at the Hayward field, Azamati will learn which men he will compete against for a shot in the semifinal.

The former University of Ghana student is expecting to perform better in Eugene after finishing behind Jamaican sensation Yohan Blake in the 100-meter semifinal at the Olympics in Tokyo.

The 100m Heats will also feature Joseph Paul Amoah on the track. The 200m national record is optimistic of making the semifinal this year after competing in the same event at the World Athletics Championships in 2019.

Joseph Amoah, who is presently rated 13th by World Athletics, ran a personal best of 9.94 seconds at the MSU Legacy Meet in April, breaking the ten-second barrier in the 100-meter sprint for the first time. Following a strong season, there will be fierce competition for spots in the 100-meter semifinals, with athletes like Fred Kerley (9.76 seconds), Trayvon Bromell (9.81 seconds), Johan Blake (9.85 seconds), Fred Omanyala (9.85 seconds), Christian Coleman (9.87 seconds), and Oblique Seville all vying for spots.

On Friday, the 100m Heats are set to start.
