Carter was the only athlete from the re-run of the men’s 110m hurdles to make the required time.
Rainy weather conditions seem to have contributed to compatriot Deuce Carter failed attempt in his first run. Carter started out well in heat but then hits a hurdle, slips and lost control. He finished 7 in his heat of the Men’s 110m Hurdles.
