June 30, 2012
KINGSTON, Jamaica -- On the third day of the Jamaican Olympic Trials, rising senior Keiron Stewart competed for the opportunity to represent Jamaica at the London Games but fell just short, finishing fourth in the finals of the 110m hurdles.
Competing in his first Olympic Trials, Stewart was coming off an All-America performance in the 110m hurdles at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. After winning his semifinal heat in 13.61, he carried the fourth-fastest overall qualifying time into the event finals. Stewart improved upon his semifinal time and crossed the finals finish line in 13.46, three hundredths of a second behind third-place finisher Richard Phillips.
Hansle Parchment (13.18) and Andrew Riley (13.19) were first and second in the deciding race and will compete with Phillips in the 110 hurdles on behalf of Jamaica in London.
