    As far as I can tell, it looks like 10 of the 24 semi-finalists are caucasian. Belgium got all 3 guys through:
    - Kévin Borlée
    - Jonathan Borlée
    - Cedric van Branteghem
    Both of Great Britain's won their heats:
    - Martyn Rooney 45.00
    - Andrew Steele 44.94
    Australia looking good with two also:
    - Joel Milburn 44.80
    - Sean Wroe
    Sweden's Johann Wissman - 44.81 (3rd in the fastest heat)
    Italy - Claudio Licciardello
    USA - Jeremy Wariner - 1st in heat - 45.23

    Russia's Denis Alekseyev just missed the cut.
    I had hoped Ireland's David Gillick would do better, but he's out.
    Canada's Tyler Christopher, who I would guess is 3/4 caucasian, is also out.Edited by: Observer
