伦敦当地时间8月7日上午进行的男子110米栏预赛中,中国田坛头号明星刘翔因伤未能完成比赛,提前退出了冠军的角逐。卫冕冠军罗伯斯在决赛中也因伤退出了比赛。美国跨栏名将梅里特以12秒92的成绩夺得冠军,在“伦敦碗”圆了冠军梦。



Aries Merritt stormed to Olympic 110m hurdles gold in a new personal best of 12.92 seconds as reigning champion Dayron Robles pulled up.

Merritt's consistency was in evidence again as he dipped more than a 0.1 secs clear of American compatriot Jason Richardson in silver.

Jamaica's Hansle Parchment took bronze with Britain's 22-year-old Lawrence Clarke a fine fourth.

Merritt was out fast and stretched away from world champion Richardson.

"I trained for this, very intensely," said Merritt. "I was trying to treat this as much like a practice session as possible, where I have no pressure. The gold means everything. This is a dream come true."

Robles had looked below his best in his semi-final and was later disqualified from the final, his title gone to Merritt down the track as he abandoned his race before 50m.

Clarke had qualified for the final with a personal best earlier in the evening and delivered in style after his team-mate Andy Turner had failed to progress from the semis.

Clarke said: "I can't believe I came fourth in the Olympic Games. I clashed arms with the South African [Lehann Fourie] and he's built like an American footballer, so maybe I would have run a PB, but I couldn't have got a medal - 13.12 secs for bronze is ridiculous.

"I treated the semi like a final and ran a personal best. I'm really pleased I was here. The crowd was amazing. My coach, Malcolm Arnold, has taken me from running 15.3 secs to 13.3 secs. I can't thank him enough."
