Lolo Jones posted the second-slowest qualifying time in the women's 100-meter hurdles semifinals Tuesday to advance to the finals at 4:00 p.m. ET later in the afternoon. Joining her will be two more Americans: Dawn Harper and Kellie Wells.
Jones finished third in her heat with a time of 12.71 seconds, forcing her to qualify on time. Harper, the defending gold medalist in the event, and Wells took easier routes to qualification by winning their heats outright. Harper won her heat with a personal best of 12.46 seconds. Wells posted a seasonal best of 12.51 seconds.
Australia's Sally Pearson posted the fastest time of the three heats, finishing in 12.39 seconds. Filling out the rest of the eight-runner field will be Turkey's Nevin Yanit (12.58 seconds), Canadians Jessica Zelinka (12.66) and Phylicia George (12.65), and Austria's Beat Schrott (12.83).
