Steve Anderson equalled the world record of 14.4 a total of four times, the last time being in 1930 when he won his third consecutive AAU title. This was the only clocking that received official IAAF recognition. He looked a likely winner of the 1928 Olympic crown when the South African, [Weightman-Smith], hit the ninth hurdle and left Anderson with a narrow lead, but another South African, [Atkinson], came through to reach the tape inches ahead. Representing the University of Washington, he won the NCAA 220y hurdles in 1929 and the high hurdles in 1930.

Personal Best: 110H – 14.4y (1928).
