SummaryEdit

The semi-finals were dominated by world leader Christian Coleman, who was allowed to compete despite missing three doping tests in year due to a technicality[2], and blasted a 9.88 while no other qualifiers broke 10. The last time qualifier Filippo Tortu made the final by .001, running 10.101 over Tyquendo Tracey's 10.102 while Aaron Brown got in by placing second behind Coleman in heat 1 with 10.12.

In the final, defending champion Justin Gatlin got a good start to gain a step on the field, except Coleman got a better start, gaining that step on Gatlin. Unlike 2017, Coleman did not give ground back, extending his lead to a dominating victory in 9.76. A new personal best, world leading time for the season, that becomes the #6 time in history, just 2 ticks behind Gatlin's best. Returning to form, Andre De Grasse closed and nearly caught Gatlin at the line in 9.90, a new wind legal personal best, though he has run as fast as 9.69 wind aided.
