Ohuruogu into 400m Final-IAAF Moscow World Championships 2013
GB & NI team captain Christine Ohuruogu (coach: Lloyd Cowan) put in another impressive performance as she qualified for tomorrow's 400m final in emphatic style in the evening session of the second day at the IAAF World Championships.
The 2007 world champion and 2008 Olympic champion overhauled the lead of American Natasha Hastings in the final 100m to win her semi-final in a time of 49.75, a season's best and only 0.14 seconds slower than the personal best that she set en route to the gold medal in Osaka in 2007.
Ohuruogu, who won Olympic silver in London last summer, ran the second fastest time of all three semi-finals and afterwards she said: "I'm just really happy to be in the final. I wanted to make sure I finished well at the end."
