8/23/2012
 
INDIANAPOLIS - 2012 Olympic medalists Dawn Harper (women’s 100-meter hurdles), Carmelita Jeter (100m) and Jason Richardson (110m hurdles) all picked up wins while Matthew Centrowitz ran the ninth-fastest time in American history in placing third in the men’s 1,500m as the Diamond League continued Thursday in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The reigning Olympic silver medalist in the event, Harper’s winning time of 12.43 seconds led a 1-2-3 American sweep in the event with Queen Harrison placing second in a season best time of 12.62 and Ginnie Crawford third in 12.64.

In the matchup of Olympic 100m silver medalist Jeter and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica, the two were clocked in identical times of  10.86 but Jeter determined the winner.

After 2012 Olympic gold medalist Aries Merritt was disqualified due to a false start, 2011 World Outdoor champion Jason Richardson led a 1-2 American finish in a time of 13.08 in the 110m hurdles. American record holder David Oliver placed second in 13.14.

Centrowitz recorded a big personal by 2.5 seconds in placing third in 3:31.78. The time places the 2011 World Outdoor Championships bronze medalist ninth on the all-time U.S. list and is the fastest U.S. time this season by more than two seconds. Leo Manzano, who won silver in London, placed 10th in a season best time of 3:34.08.
