Trio of Americans Win in London

7/27/2013
 
INDIANAPOLIS - After a strong showing by the American middle-distance runners yesterday, it was the sprinters’ turn in the spotlight today with big wins from Michael Tinsley, David Oliver and Allyson Felix on the second day of the  London Diamond League meet hosted by the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Tinsley (Round Rock, Texas) led the way for a U.S. sweep of the men’s 400m hurdles. Tinsley looked effortless as he won by half a second in 47.98. The mark gives Tinsley the two fastest times in the world this year, as it was just behind his current world leading mark of 47.96. Johnny Dutch (Clayton, N.C.) took second in 48.40, with Justin Gaymon (Athens, Ga.) third and Bershawn Jackson (Raleigh, N.C.) fourth.

Oliver (Kissimmee, Fla.) looked in control throughout the race to take the win in the men’s 110m hurdles. After getting out to a good start, Oliver led throughout the race to cross the line in 13.20. Ryan Wilson (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Jeff Porter (Canton, Mich.) finished fourth and sixth, respectively. Aries Merritt (Bryan, Texas) hit the fifth hurdle and was knocked out of the race.

Felix (Santa Clarita, Calif.) held off a charging Shalonda Solomon (Inglewood, Calif.) on the homestretch and pulled ahead to take the 200m win in 22.41. Solomon was close behind in 22.50.
