Liberia Joseph Fahnbulleh Heads to Finals of 200 Meters at World Championships

For the second-straight year, Joseph Fahnbulleh will race in the finals at a global track and field meet.

A year after running in the finals of the 200 meters at the Tokyo Olympics, the Liberian is headed to the finals of the World Championships in Eugene.

Fahnbulleh was second in his heat, crossing the line in 19.92 and earning an automatic berth into the finals.

The Hopkins, Minn. native will line up with some of the best athletes in the world on Thursday evening in search of his first global medal.

Fahnbulleh was the NCAA Champion across 100 and 200 meters just last month as he helped the Gators to the team title in Eugene.

No Liberian has ever medaled at World Championships, paving the path for Fahnbulleh to be the first to ever do so for his country.

The final of the 200 meters will take place on the USA Network on Thursday evening at 10:50 PM EDT.
