LONDON -- Nick Symmonds of Eugene won his 800 meter heat and advances to the semi-final along with fellow American Duane Solomon of of Los Angeles. Both won theier heats.

“I’m just glad it was an honest race so it strung out a bit," Symmonds said, "No pushing and shoving, it was a relatively smooth race...I felt pretty good, a little flat, but historically that means I should feel really good tomorrow.”

Khadevis Robinson finished fifth in his heat and did not advance.
