Omanyala finished fifth in the semifinals with a time of 10.14 seconds. Omanyala stated in his morning tweet that every difficulty you experience today makes you stronger. The purpose of life's difficulties is to make you stronger, not bitter. The only way to develop persistence and resiliency is to be given the opportunity to work through challenging problems. No matter how much rain pours on us, we continue to move.
