Three-time NCAA champion Brianna Rollins, who ran at Clemson, has set the American record in the women's 100 meter hurdles at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. Rollins clocked a time of 12.26 seconds, breaking Gail Devers old mark.
Rollins turned pro earlier this month. Her time is tied for the third fastest in history for the women's 100 meter hurdles.
On Sunday in Des Moines, Ex-Green Sea-Floyds High track star Calesio Newman made it to the finals of the men's 200 meters. He finished 7th.
Former Coastal Carolina All-American Amber Campbell threw a personal best of 73.03 meters to finish third in the women's hammer throw. Campbell has made the United States National Team for a sixth time. She will compete in the World Championships in Moscow next month.
