Abeiku Jackson has qualified for the men’s 100m butterfly semi-finals at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
The 22-year-old swimmer completed his heat with a time of 53.60 to finish 12 out of the 47 who swam on Monday.
This evening, Jackson will return to the pool for the semi-finals, where he will attempt to advance to the final.
Jackson struggled in the 50m butterfly heats last week, failing to make the semi-finals, but he is determined to win a medal in the 100m butterfly event.
Also on Monday, boxer Joseph Commey advanced to the quarterfinals of the featherweight division after beating Vanuatu’s Allan Oaike.
The bout lasted 2 minutes 58 seconds.

Ghana won only one medal (bronze) at the previous edition, which was held in Gold Coast, Australia.
