WOMEN’S 100M HURDLES SEMIS
Sorry Jamaica but we don’t have a chance of a medal in this event. No Jamaicans have made the Final.
Defending Champ, Danielle Williams, our biggest chance, just hit almost every hurdle and finished 5th, pressured by Christina Manning of the USA beside her. She apparently lost focus.
Other qualifiers are no surprises as predicted by Suga. Talay has not done well this season but always seems to sneak her way into the Final. She flipped the script and is a dark horse.
Is Kendra Harrison officially a choker? It seems so. She hit the first hurdle and it was downhill from there, fighting to finish 3rd in her Semi. She qualified as a fastest loser, knocking out our Yanique Thompson who finished 3rd in Danielle’s Semi.
Little Megan Simmonds did her best, finishing 4th but was in a heated Semi led by Sally Pearson.
Sally Pearson may be able to create the upset for GOLD if Kendra doesn’t get her head right Suga Bears! Sally is looking really good and solid.
