London 2012 Olympics: Dawn Harper Qualifies For 100m Hurdle Semifinals

The latest news out of London is that East St. Louis native Dawn Harper is moving to the next stage of the women's 100m hurdle event.

Harper, 28, finished second in Heat 4 with a mark of 12.75, just 0.05 behind first place Nevin Yanit out of Turkey. The time prove more than enough to put Harper in the semifinals, as well as a tie for the No. 6 overall spot with Canada's Jessica Zelinka.

Elsewhere in Monday's games, American Matt Emmons took a bronze medal in the men's 50m rifle, posting a final score of 1271.3, behind first-place Niccolo Campriani of Italy (1278.5). And the men's US Basketball team is preparing to take the court at 4:15 p.m. CDT against the Argentinian team.
