For the fourth straight Olympics, [Gail Devers] continued her personal high hurdles soap opera. This time she started the first round with a wrap around an injured calf, and she did not make it over the first hurdle, her Olympic hurdling career over. The favorite’s role in Athina fell to Canada’s [Perdita Felicien], who had been World Champion in 2003, and she posted the fastest time in the semi-finals. In the final, Felicien hit the first hurdle hard, and moved into the adjacent lane, taking out Russia’s [Irina Shevchenko], both falling. There was now nobody left in the race with any significant high hurdle record. America’s [Joanna Hayes], a converted 400 hurdler, went on to win in 12.37. Russian officials protested the race, demanding that it be re-run but this was not done.
