Olympic Trials: 110 Hurdle finals

The 110 hurdles finals at the Olympic Trials, was loaded with America's top talent in the hurdles. The top three will advance to take on the best in the world like, China's Liu Xiang and Cuban world record holder Daron Robles. The race was clean from the start. The top three runners all broke away from the pack by the fifth hurdle. David Oliver, Terrence Trammell and Anwar Moore all established an early presence. In the end; David Oliver took first, Trammell ran in to take a close second place and David Payne earned the last ticket to Beijing after Anwar moore took a spill on the last hurdle. Moore would have easily taken third place if he hadn't hit that last hurdle. As for the top three finishers, its off to Beijing to compete and bring home the gold. Congratulations to David Oliver on the Olympic berth and good luck!
