Oakley's Lolo Jones Wins In World-Leading Time


Oakley’s Lolo Jones won the 100m hurdles in the world-leading time of 12.55 seconds last weekend at the fifth stop of the Diamond League series in New York.

“I ran a cool and collected race today,” said Jones, the two-time world indoor hurdles champion. “I am definitely pleased with that time, and coming early in the season shows me I can run a lot faster.”

Jones edged out Canada’s Perdita Felicien (12.58). The third and fourth place finishers American Virginia Crawford (12.63) and Canadian Priscilla Lopes-Schliep (12.67) weren’t far off that pace.
