Masiuk made a Saturday start of the second track. The single-length race is so fast that it’s hard to see the situation. However, it was clear that the tone was set by the Americans – Justin Reese and Hunter Armstrong.

Reese was the first to come, but After the race, he was found ineligible. Thus, Armstrong won with a time of 24.14. He outplayed Masyuk (24.49) and Italy’s Thomas Ciccone (24.51), the 100m world champion in this style.

In the race over twice the distance, Masyuk was also in the final, but finished sixth.

The 17-year-old Polish made himself known to the world during last year’s European Junior Championships in Romewhere he won as many as five medals, including three golds.
