Spence finished third overall in her heat with a time of 55.72.

Spence will have to wait until Sunday, July 1, for the final race, which is set for 4:20 pm.

Spence is looking to join Amanda Bingson (women's hammer throw) and Khadevis Robinson (men's 800m) in London after the pair qualified earlier at the Trials.
