Brianna Rollins won first in the women’s 100 meter hurdles, finishing in 12.34 seconds. She was followed by Kristi Castlin in 12.50, and Nia Ali in 12.55. All three will compete in the event at the Rio Games, which will serve as their Olympic debuts.

Meanwhile, Keni Harrison – an odds-on favorite – did not make the Olympic team. She finished fourth in 12.57 seconds.

Earlier in the evening, Dawn Harper-Nelson – who won gold in the event at the Beijing 2008 Games, and silver at the London 2012 Games – was eliminated in the semifinals, missing the final by .01 seconds.
