Summary

With no clear favorite as there had been at the last few Olympics, the event was wide open. Yuliya Nesterenko (BLR) was unheralded prior to the Olympics. In the first round, her 10.94 was a Belarussian national record. He was expected to be challenged in the final by Lauryn Williams (USA), who had won the 2005 World Championships and was NCAA Champion in 2006. Williams got off to a slow start in the final, but surged early and took the lead. At 80 metres Nesterenko caught her and pulled ahead to win in a close, but surprising finish. Nesterenko became the first female sprinter to run all four rounds under 11 second. Her best previous finish at a major meet had been a bronze in the 2004 World Indoors over 60 metres. It was later noted that in 2002 she had failed a drug test, which showed clenbuterol, but she was never suspended because the lab that ran the test was not approved by the IAAF.
