LUCY MAY SLEEMAN has qualified for the 100m semi-final at the 2022 World Athletics U20 Championships in Colombia.

The Leevale AC sprinter finished fourth in her heat, her time of 11.71 enough to send her through as a fastest non-automatic qualifier in Cali.

The semi-final is scheduled for 10.05pm Irish time tomorrow. 

Earlier, Lucy McGlynn narrowly missed out on reaching the semi-final of the 400m hurdles.

The Tyrone athlete clocked a time of 1:00.30 in her heat, with a time of 1:00.29 enough to send Yaroslava Yalysovetska of the Ukraine though.

McGlynn will be back in the action in the 100m hurdles heats on Thursday.
