Oh snap. I thought his best was a 13.16. 13.03 is incredible.

We should also remember that the particular track surface can affect things. Devon is very accustomed to running at Hayward, which could be a slightly "faster" track than the one at Rio. But it looked like Allen at least nicked most of the hurdles -- and creamed some of them. Had his form been cleaner, who knows. But this is another whole stage of competition and a great experience for Devon.

The lack of clean runs is what did him in. He admitted that in his first race he was kind of amped on adrenaline and would work to get that down in later races, but it looked like he never did calm his nerves down to a more balanced level. I guess you can't really fault him for being that way, considering it was his first major international competition.
