Lolo Jones, Damu Cherry, and Dawn Harper Get Past Semi-final Round.

Olympics Day 10 - Athletics

-Beijing-Timing is everything. Most are aware of Lolo Jones’ struggles off the track. She has gotten past being homeless as a child, and financial woes after the 04' season.

This time the LSU alum is peaking at the right time. Lolo posted the fastest time (12.43) the event has seen in three years and the best time of her life.

The U.S. hurdlers including Dawn Harper (12.73) and Damu Cherry (12.92) qualified with the fastest time.

Many expected Susanna Kallur of Sweden to at least make the finals and potentially medal, however she fell to the track during her and did not qualify.

Look for Lolo to lead a U.S. sweep of the with 100-hurdles. If this happen fans will see raw emotions of joy and a good celebration dance.
