James Dasaolu, James Ellington clinch Great Britain 100m berths for Rio Olympics

James Dasaolu seals a place at the Rio Olympics, his second Games, along with James Ellington, after winning the 100m race at Saturday's British Championships.

James Dasaolu has secured his place at a second Olympic Games after winning the 100m race at Saturday's British Championships.

The 2014 European 100m champion got out of the starting blocks well and held a metre lead at halfway in Birmingham's Alexander Stadium.

With Richard Kilty and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey struggling, and veteran Dwain Chambers never in the picture, CJ Ujah appeared to be the only threat to Dasaolu's top-spot ambitions.

James Ellington, however, came through late outside them to steal both second place and the second automatic Great Britain Rio Olympics berth.
