Bramlett continued to prove himself on the highly competitive U.S. men’s 110m hurdles scene with his impressive 4th place finish at the 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials, along with setting a new personal best of 13.26. One of America’s top young prospects, Bramlett scored his first world ranking in 2003 (8th). He has set the goal of joining Allen Johnson and Terrence Trammell as one of America’s long line of all-time great hurdlers. “I’ve met Allen and Terrence and they’re great athletes and very approachable,” he said. “I watch a lot of film of both of them. Terrence has a great start and Allen and I are about the same size, so I really study his technique. Along with that, I need to get stronger and improve little things in my technique. I want to consistently compete in the 13.20s and 13.10s. ”As a high school star in Clarksville, Tenn., Bramlett was a member of the state championship 4x400m relay team, and finished third in the 110m hurdles at the 1998 USA Junior Track & Field Championships. In 2002, Bramlett won his second consecutive NCAA hurdles crown after hitting numerous hurdles in the qualifying rounds and finishing an uncharacteristic fourth in the semifinals. Running out of lane 2 in the finals, Bramlett roared out of the blocks with only Jermaine Cooper of Texas keeping pace. Bramlett returned to his smooth style to win the race to join Terrence Trammell (1999-‘00) as the only back-to-back winners since Oregon’s Jerry Tarr accomplished the feat in 1961-’62.
