Rollins nabbed the gold, racing in at a very-fast 12.48 while teammates Ali and Castlin finished at 12.59 and 12.61 respectively, grabbing silver and bronze for the first sweep by any nation in this event in Olympic history. Great Britain’s Cindy Ofili came in pretty dang close to Castlin, coming in fourth at an extremely respectable 12.63.

Rollins cleared the hurdles easily and pulled away from the pack in the final meters, with her teammates on her heels.
