Former University of Tennessee track star Justin Gatlin's quest for a second gold medal is looking much like the first.
Gatlin, who has already won the gold medal in the men's 100-meter dash, garnering the title of "World's Fastest Man," qualified for the semifinals in the men's 200m on Tuesday, finishing second in preliminaries behind USA teammate Anthony Crawford.
The former Vol finished in 20.03 seconds while Crawford broke the 20-second mark at 19.95. In qualifying for the 100m finals, Gatlin finished a close second to Crawford in their heat, but came back to win the gold medal in the final.
Crawford and Gatlin, in addition to fellow American Bernard Williams, advance to the semifinals, which will be held at 3:50 p.m. ET today.
The men's 200m final is scheduled for 3:50 p.m. ET Thursday.
