The last two World Championships (2001/03), and four of the last five, had been won by the 1996 gold medalist [Allen Johnson] (USA). At the 2003 Worlds he had defeated fellow American [Terrence Trammell] (silver) and China’s [Liu Xiang] (bronze). But based on results early in 2004, Liu was the favorite in Athina. Johnson made the US team but kept hitting barriers in the quarter-finals and fell at the ninth hurdle, not qualifying. Liu and Trammell easily made it to the final, as did defending gold medalist [Anier García] (CUB). They were joined by French hurdler [Ladji Doucouré] who won the second semi-final in 13.06. In the final Liu and Trammell led through four hurdles when Liu pulled ahead. Doucouré then pulled up to Trammell and led him slightly at the ninth hurdles, when he the barrier and then clobbered the tenth, eventually finishing last. Liu won by almost three metres over Trammell, with García third, in a time of 12.91, equalling the world record.
