Thomas Barr is through to the men's 400 metre hurdles semi-final in Doha.

The Waterford athlete set a time of 49:41 to finish second in Heat 1 behind reigning world champion Karsten Warholm of Norway.

It was more than enough for the 27-year-old to advance to the next stage, as the Top 4 in his heat qualified.

Onwards to Semi-Final
