Omar McLeod Wins Heat 1, Qualifies for 110m Hurdles Semi at Rio Olympics

Omar McLeod won heat 1 of the Men’s 110m Hurdles in 13.27 and has advanced to the semi-finals at the Rio Olympics.

McLeod beat Jeff Porter of the USA (2nd in 13.50s) and Jeffrey Julmis of Haiti, who finished third in 13.66s.


Rainy weather conditions seem to have contributed to compatriot Deuce Carter failed attempt to qualify for the semis.

Carter started out well in heat but then hits a hurdle, slips and didn’t recover. He finished 7 in his heat of the Men’s 110m Hurdles.

The track and field events at the Rio Olympics has been delayed due heavy rains.
