Calvert ran a strong bend and came off the turn among the leaders, but when challenged with about 60 metres left in the race, she struggled to respond and faded out of contention for a spot in the semi-finals.

Anglerne Annelus of the United States of America won the event in 22.56 seconds with Carolle Zahi of France second in 22.99 and Beth Dobbin of Great Britain third in 23.14.

Calvert-Powell ran 23.52 seconds as Jamaica will go into the semi-finals with two athletes. Elaine Thompson and Sashalee Forbes had earlier qualified for the semi-finals.
