Day 1 Qualifying Review:

Kellie Wells established herself well in this preliminary round, recording the fastest time of the day at 12.68. 2008 Olympic Champion Dawn Harper and Christina Manning also advance with strong performances. 2008 Trials champion Lolo Jones was able to grab the final automatically qualifying spot in her heat. She does make the semi-finals but must show some significant improvement if she is to secure a spot for London. The semi-finals will be Saturday with the top 8 advancing the finals later in the evening.

 

The women's 100m hurdles looks to be a very closely contested affair at the Trials. Coming into Eugene, 10 women are separated by 0.3 seconds in this race. The field is led by Dawn Harper who is the defending 2008 Olympic champion and won bronze in at last year's World Championships. Others in this tightly bunched field include 2011 world silver medalist Danielle Carruthers, Kellie Wells, Kristi Catlin, Virginia Powell and Lolo Jones. NCAA Champion Christina Manning of Ohio State is a young talent worth keeping an eye on.
