2012 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials: Sanya Richards-Ross, Dee Dee Trotter, Francena McCorory Qualify For Olympics

Sanya Richards-Ross is headed to London after finishing a great race in the women's 400 meters at the U.S. Olympic trials. The 2009 World Champion is one of the big favorites in the upcoming Olympics, and she showed why by equaling the U.S. Trials record by winning the race in 49.28 seconds. That time is also the best in the world since her own winning run at the 2009 World Championships.

She'll be joined on the U.S. track team by Dee Dee Trotter and Francena McCorory. Trotter is a veteran of the Olympics, but her qualification over fourth-placed Debbie Dunn, who was the 2010 U.S. Champion, was a slight surprise. McCorory led the majority of the race after getting off to a fast start, but appeared to burn herself out a bit early as she was passed by Richards-Ross down the stretch and forced to hang on for third place.
