LONDON – Ryan Brathwaite finished fifth in the men’s 110 metres hurdles earlier this evening at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Brathwaite had a good start and was with the leaders for the first half of the race, but faded after striking several hurdles.
His time was 13.40 seconds, just edged by Britain’s Lawrence Clarke who did 13.39.
American Aries Merritt, who has consistently been the best sprint hurdler all season, won the gold medal with a personal best 12.92 seconds and world champion Jason Richardson was second in 13.04 to give the United States the one-two.
Hansle Parchment of Jamaica took the bronze in a national record 13.12 seconds after making tremendous strides this season in the event. He set the new national record of 13.14 in the semis before chipping off some more time, leaning at the line. (SAT)
