DOHA, Qatar – Rasheed Dwyer has pulled out of the men’s 100m at the 17th IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 (Video Below).
Dwyer, according to his coach, Maurice Wilson, decided its in the best interest of the sprinter to concentrate on one event.
Both coach and athlete believe the chances of a medal is in the men’s half-lap event.
“We have made a strategic decision at this point not to double,” said Wilson, who is also the head coach of Jamaica’s team.
“When we looked at the condition, when we look at how difficult it is to recover, we felt a better opportunities presents itself in the 200m,” he added.

Good luck! I respect his decision… but why so late? At this moment his reasons are not valid. He should have decided it right after the Jamaica Track and Field National Trials 2019. It means he wasted one spot for his country, which could have been filled in by Asafa Powell(10.02 July 24th) or Waseem Williams(10.01 July 5th) or Andre Ewers(10.06 May 11th) It feels like he robbed them in a way….
Wise move… he wouldn’t have factored….
Shantell Williams Tracy has been performing well throughout season
Rasheed well fingers are crossed
Donovan Manhue yes but he will deliver
Will be an uphill battle for him.
Well we only have 1 medal coming from the 100m men thanks to Tracy all the best to rasheed in the 200m good decision
Jenny Carruthers yea..he will learn from it
Jenny Carruthers that’s my point exactly ewer can run 9.9 but with him you never know which Andre will show up the day of the meet.
Oshae Hudson, I know. That’s why I said pity. It bodes well for Tokyo if he can use that improvement as motivation.
Omar Brown, this season’s times favour Waseem with 4 qualifiers if you are talking consistency. Andre had a 9.98 last year but 10.06 best this year.
Jenny Carruthers and Patra Gayle..Waseem didn’t secure his spot on the team based on what he did at the trials….
Patra Gayle Andre is a better 100m runner, he’s just not consistent, if it’s his good day, he can possibly reach the finals.
Patra Gayle, he has a qualifying time so is eligible.
Oshae Hudson, pity because he posted several qualifying times after the championships.
Andre do not need to run the 100m either. Plus Waseem won the under 23 100m at Naac in 10.01 .
@Patra Gayle waseem had no chance at getting entered..he didn’t make the team…the alternate is Andre Ewers who is entered in the event…
You know from day one that he could not reach the semi final but being the selfish coach you are sir you waited until the entry list close to make your decision. When we could have entered Wasseem Willians
Sensible decision. Wish him the best in the 200??
