#Doha2019: TT Cedenio wins semis heat as Bloomfield move into men’s 400 final

Machel Cedenio of Trinidad and Tobago.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Cedenio cruised into the final of the men’s 400 metres on Wednesday, after winning semi-finals Heat Three at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

Cedenio ran a steady race and when challenged by Jamaica’s Akeem Bloomfield at the top of the homestretch just stepped up the pace slightly to move away and win.

That effort, had Bloomfield tiring towards the end of the race and he was passed by the fast-finishing Anthony Jose Zambrano of Colombia in the final 50 metres.

Cedenio did a season best of 44.41 seconds with Zambrano doing a national record of 44.55 as Bloomfield ended in 44.77.
