The fast time earned Guliyev the title of “the third white athlete who scored below 10 seconds”, according to a statement by the federation.

Frenchman Christopher Lemaitre in 2010 was the first white runner to break the 10-second barrier.

Jak Ali Harvey, who finished second in 10.10 seconds Thursday, also qualified for the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London next month.
