British trio Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, Dwain Chambers and James Dasaolu all reach the men's 100m final at the European Championships in Zurich.

The British trio of Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, Dwain Chambers and James Dasaolu all qualified for the men's 100m final at the European Championships in Zurich this evening.

Dasaolu was the best of the lot, posting the fastest time of the semi-finals - 10.04s - which was good enough to pip France's Christophe Lemaitre, who ran a season-best 10.10s.

Aikines-Aryeetey won his semi in 10.21s, while Chambers was second in his behind Germany's Lukas Jakubczyk.

The other athletes in the final, which takes place later this evening, are from Norway, Romania and Portugal.
