Akani Simbine, who made the 100m final on Saturday night, was back in action on Monday in the first round of the 200m.
The 23 year old was drawn in the seventh lane inside American Isiah Young, potentially the faster man in the field.
The South African ran a controlled race around the bend and looked to be enjoying his race to finish behind Young in 20.26 just 0.07 seconds adrift of the American.
The hip impingement that had hampered Simbine earlier in the week is receiving attention and he does not feel this will be a problem in getting into the final.
