The Waterford native beat his own national record as he booked his spot in the final with a time of 48.39.

Barr started well in the early hours of this morning and was in a good position coming into the final bend before he found another gear and kicked on to win.

He was the third fasted qualifier for Thursday's final so that should ensure a favourable lane draw.

Kerron Clement was the fastest qualifier for the final clocking in a time of 48.26 seconds...

We're all behind you Thomas...
