Day 3 July 11
Lashinda Demus and Bershawn Jackson come to grief on last hurdle; Sheena Johnson wins. Kelly Willie leads 400m quarters. Brittany Daniels falters.
The fact that the 400m hurdles is a gruelling event was on vivid display on national television, as two former high school stars came to grief on big leads and a third rallied to victory. "The hurdles get higher at the end of the race," said TV announcer Carol Lewis. They sure did for Lashinda Demus. The high school national record holder at 300H (39.98 in 2001, only US prep ever to break 40 seconds) and world junior record holder at 400H (54.70 winning the World Juniors at Jamaica in 2002) was running away from the women's 400H field after eight hurdles. Then she hit the 9th hurdle hard with her trailing leg and almost fell. She slowed to baby steps before the 10th and last hurdle trying to get it lined up and almost stopped as Sheena Johnson, Brenda Taylor and 4-time US champ Sandra Glover swept past her. Demus somehow recovered in the sprint to the finish to catch Glover for the third and last spot on the US team for Athens. Johnson, a sprint-hurdle-jumps powerhouse for Garfield HS in northern Virginia in 2000 (US junior champ in 400H), won in a US Trials record 52.95. Despite her problems, Demus ran a personal record 53.43, making you wonder if she could have beaten the US record (52.61 by Kim Batten in 1995) if she had kept her form through the last two hurdles.

In the men's 400H, Bershawn Jackson, former Miami FL Central star (2002 Florida, Golden West and US junior nationals champ), had similar problems with a worse ending. Jackson was the fastest in the semis and made up the stagger from lane 3 entering the stretch. Just when it seemed he was pulling away to victory, Jackson lost his rhythm before the last hurdle and tried to clear it with two long glides. The shortest elite hurdler at 5-8, Jackson crashed into the hurdle head on and was shut out of the Olympic team by former Maryland HS star James Carter (Mervo Tech 1996) 47.68, 2000 Olympic champ Angelo Taylor 48.03 and Bennie Brazell 48.05. Jackson stumbled home in 48.11. Another former HS great, Rickey Harris (2000 Virginia, Arcadia, FLO Raleigh and US Junior champ), did not finish.
- W-TJ - New high school record holder Brittany Daniels (Merrill West Tracy CA) fell off her recent 44-foot form and finished 9th at 42-7 +0.2 as Tiombe Hurd broke the US record with a stupendous leap of 47-5.

- M-400 quarters - Former Sterling Houston TX star Kelly Willie (2002 Texas 3A and Golden West champ) was fastest at 44.63, with former Lamar Arlington TX star Jeremy Wariner (2002 Texas 5A 200/400 champ) third fastest at 45.39.
- M 100 final - 2000 Olympic champ Maurice Greene 9.91 +0.0, Justin Gatlin 9.92 and Shawn Crawford 9.93 are the US team for Athens. Former Maryland HS star (Carver Baltimore, 1997) Bernard Williams 10.04 was sixth, and world record holder Tim Montgomery 10.13 seventh.
