The Limonense started in lane six of the final. He finished his heat with a time of 10.78, thus improving his personal best (10.88).

In this category, the Costa Rican faced Johannes Floors and Felix Streng from Germany;

Jarryd Wallace, Jonathan Gore and Hunter Woodhall from the United States; Jonathan Peacock from the UK; and Mpumelelo Mhlongo from South Africa.

Güity got a kind of reward with this medal, as he was out of competition for 24 months,

after testing positive for doping after committing an unintentional infraction.
