Summer Olympics 2012: Dawn Harper Advances To 100m Hurdle Finals

On the merit of a career-best 12.46 mark -- and the second-best mark of the 2012 London Olympics -- St. Louis native Dawn Harper will advance to the semifinals in the women's 100m hurdle. In the words of Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson, Harper's performance was "sick":

Harper won her heat Tuesday (Heat 1) and managed to post the best time of the day. On Monday, she finished with a 12.75 mark, good for second place in Heat 4. Now she will race with fellow Americans Lolo Jones and Dellie Wells in the finals at 3:00 p.m. CDT, Tuesday afternoon.
