25-year old Jasmin Stowers got the win in a seasonal best of 12.59 as she was overcome to catch early leader Christina Manning Believe it or not, 12.56 is #3 in the world this year as world record holder Bri Rollins hasnâ€™t been competing much due to injury (she leads the world at 12.56 from Drake).
Olympic champ Omar McLeod showed while heâ€™s the best in the world as he won in a world leading 13.03. When asked why heâ€™s consistently so good (McLeod only lost twice last year - he was also DQd once), McLeod said, â€œIâ€™m having fun every time. I try to take it as a leisure activity -not trying to take it like a job. It makes it a lot easier. I just love racing, I love having fun and putting on a show.â€
