Defending champion Christophe Lemaitre easily qualified for the 100-meter semifinal at the European Championships on Wednesday along with French compatriot Jimmy Vicaut.

Lemaitre won a sprint triple at the last Euro championships, adding the 200 and sprint relays to his 100 gold. Because of the upcoming Olympics, he is limiting his schedule at the five-day event this year and cut the 200.

Lemaitre eased well before the line to cross in 10.14 seconds as the top qualifier, just ahead of Vicaut, who had a time of 10.18. The semifinals are set for late Wednesday.
