RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — American Brianna Rollins started out fast and never looked back.
Rollins lead the U.S. sweep of the 100-meter hurdles at the Rio Games on Wednesday night, winning with 12.48 seconds.
Though Rollins was unreachable, it came down to hundredths of seconds for the other two medals.
Nia Ali had silver with 12.59 and Kristi Castlin had 12.61 for bronze.
The United States had such strength in depth this year that they could leave world record holder Kendra Harrison at home and still sweep the race.
