Natayla Antyukh of Russia came in first place at the 400M hurdles semi-final with 53.33 seconds. Other Americans advancing to final include Lashinda Demus and T'Erea Brown.
Georganne Moline, from the University of Arizona, was undefeated in her junior season until the semi-finals of the NCAA where she fell. At the 2012 London Olympics, the 22 year-old lowered her personal best to 54.31. Moline has trained heavily in her typical routine while in London.
"It takes a toll on me physically and mentally," Moline said. "But what a way to spend my summer."
Moline and fellow hurdlers have a day of rest before the Women's 400M finals on August 8 at 3:45PM EST.
"In order to have success, you need to know what failure is," Moline said. "I've definitely had failure over and over again, so I'm just taking advantage of this moment and having fun with it."
