Eugene, United States: Brianna Rollins scored a stunning victory in the 100m hurdles at the US Olympic track and field trials here Friday.
The drama on a rainswept day at Hayward Field came in the women´s 100m hurdles, where 2013 world champion Rollins scored a superb victory in 12.34sec.
Kristi Castlin finished second with Nia Ali third.
“I knew I was ready, I just wanted to come out here and do the best race I can, and I managed to execute that,” Rollins said.
Keni Harrison, the fastest woman in the world this year in the event, finished in sixth spot and missed out on a place in Rio.
Harrison´s finish outside the qualifying spots reflects the ferocious depth of competition in the event amongst US hurdlers, who have monopolized all of this season´s top 10 times.
