Bershawn 'Batman' Jackson, showing his racing skill, took on all comers and ran the fastest time in the world since the Beijing Olympics with his fine 47.32! Jackson looked great over all the hurdles, and was followed by Johnny Dutch, who ran his personal best, a hugely fast 47.63! Micheal Tinsely ran 48.72 for third place.

When asked after the race, what he attributed his win to, Bershawn noted, " It was the crowd! The crowd was with me and it was a great crowd!"

Bershawn Jackson broke the stadium and Iowa soil records for the 400m hurdles, set by Danny Harris in 1986, with a time of 48.28. Danny Harris gave Bershawn his award today after his 47.32 performance!
