SummaryEdit

In the third heat of the semi finals, Patricia Girard and Vonette Dixon had a rare, unbreakable tie for the second qualifying spot. Since the Paris track could accommodate 9 runners, this was a rare case where 9 were advanced to the finals.

Running before a home crowd, Girard was marginally first over the first hurdle of the final. She extended the lead over the second hurdle, but by the third, the field had come back. Jenny Adams and Perdita Felicien emerged with the lead. By the fifth hurdle, Felicien was all alone. Glory Alozie, Miesha McKelvy and Brigitte Foster-Hylton had joined Adams in the hunt for silver. By the seventh hurdle, Felicien had a 1 metre lead over McKelvy, slightly ahead of Foster-Hylton. Through the next couple of hurdles, Foster-Hylton got up a head of steam, passing McKelvy and pulling in some of Felicien's lead. Diving for the line early, Foster-Hylton got as close as a foot (30 cm) a couple of metres before the finish, but she was losing balance. Felicien crossed the finish maintaining her speed while Foster-Hylton struggled her last two steps, crashing to the track after the finish. More than a metre back, McKelvy took bronze, still half a metre ahead of Alozie.
