The 110 meter hurdles is a tough race. Not only does the successful hurdle have to be agile, they also must be fast and nearly flawless. Omar McLeod continued on his winning ways, taking gold in 13.04. Sergei Shubenkov took silver in 13.18 and Balazs Baji took bronze in 13.28. Right behind them, Garfield Darien and Aries Merritt were in the battle, except, they hit hurdles, putting them out of the medal race.

The presser gives the hurdlers a chance to speak about their races. Sergei Shubenkov dealt as well as he could with questions on him not being able to celebrate as a Russian but as an ANA athlete.
