Athletics: Botswana's Makwala cleared to run in 200 metres
LONDON (Reuters) - Botswana sprinter Isaac Makwala has been cleared to run in the men's 200 metres at the World Athletics Championships, the global athletics body (IAAF) said in a statement on Wednesday.
The IAAF had pulled Makwala out of Monday's opening round, and Tuesday's 400 metres final, for medical reasons.
The statement said Makwala would run on his own before the evening session and would be allowed to compete in the semi-final later provided he made the qualification time of 20.53 seconds.
