Gold, silver, and bronze!

Yesterday's U.S. Olympic highlight was without a doubt three Americans sweeping the medal podium in the women's 100m hurdles. Brianna Rollins took gold with a time of 12.48 seconds, followed by teammates Nia Ali (12.59) and Kristi Castlin (12.61). It was the first sweep of the event ever and the first time the U.S. women took all three medals in any track and field event.
