Barnsley man Joe Ferguson is through to the semi-final of the 200m at the World Athletics Championship in Eugene, USA.
The 22-year-old from Darton recorded a time of 20.33 in his heat today, which was his first senior race for Great Britain.
He finished fourth, with three qualifying automatically, but was one of three 'fastest losers' after a nervous race for the other six heats to be completed.
Ferguson finished seventh in the semi-finals in the early hours of Wednesday morning, UK time so did not make the final.
