The Mauritian Jérémie Lararaudeuse, 21 years old, vice-champion of Africa in the 110m hurdles, did not qualify for the semi-finals of the 110m hurdles of the World Athletics Championships currently taking place in Oregon, USA.
The second youngest participant in the 110m hurdles qualifiers started from the sixth lane and finished in eighth place in 14.19 seconds, far behind the American Trey Cunningham (13.28 seconds). The reigning African champion of the distance, Moroccan Amine Bouanani finished in second place in the third heat and qualified for the semi-finals.
Jeremie Lararaudeuse had beaten his own national record in 13.70 seconds at the French U23 Championships on July 10. He thus evolved far from his best mark during these World Athletics Championships.
The next stop for Jérémie Lararaudeuse is none other than the Commonwealth Games, which take place from July 28 to August 8 in Birmingham, England.
