Green advances to Olympic 400 hurdles final

Leford Green is one race away from an Olympic medal.


The 2011 Johnson C. Smith graduate ran a season-best time of 48.61 seconds Saturday to qualify for the 400 meter hurdles. Green, a Jamaican, finished second to American Michael Tinsley (48.16) in their semifinal heat.


The finals will be held on Aug. 6 at 3:45 p.m. Eastern Time.


The top two finishers in each of three semifinal rounds automatically qualified for the finals with the next two fastest times rounding out the field.


Tinsley, a Jackson State grad, has won both of their head-to-head heats as Green eased up near the finish while Tinsley cruised to the line. Green’s clocking was an improvement on his first-round time of 49.30.


Three Americans will run in the final, with Kerron Clement (48.12) and Angelo Taylor (47.95) also qualifying.
