DasorEmmanuel Dasor has qualified for the IAAF World Championships after running a personal best 45.43s (PB) at the Conference USA Championships in El Paso, Texas, USA last Sunday.

Dasor, a senior at Western Kentucky University, was drawn in lane 7 for the final race alongside Emmanuel Korir- the 4th fastest 400m runner in the world this year.

The Ghanaian Olympian made a bright start to his race, making up ground on lane 8th in the first 200m and led going into the home straight before Korir made a late surge to take first place.

Dasor clinched second place in 45.43s, enough to meet the qualifying mark of 45.50s.

Qualification for the worlds is just reward for Dasor who dipped under 46 seconds in his first race of the outdoor season, clocking 45.93s at the Florida Relays on April 1st.

He again opened his 200m outdoor campaign with 20.55 secs, just short of the 20.44s for the IAAF World Championships.

The former T. I. Amass student is now set to make his maiden appearance at the Worlds, having made his Olympic bow at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
