They were off and running in Track & Field in the Women’s 100m Hurdles as Sally Pearson of Australia wasn’t going to be denied as she sprinted to gold, but the United States faired very well as Dawn Harper was behind Pearson by two one-hundredths of a second to claim silver and Kellie Wells is bringing home the bronze and Lolo Jones who ran a clean, smooth race, finished 4th out of medal contention.
