Woodford Green with Essex Ladies' Tiffany Porter wins hurdles bronze at World Championships
5:54pm Saturday 17th August 2013 in Sport
Tiffany Porter won 100m hurdles bronze at the World Championships to give Great Britain two medals in the space of 20 minutes after the women's 4x400m team's third place in Moscow.
The Woodford Green with Essex Ladies athlete ran a new personal best of 12.55, but was just edged out of silver by Australia's Olympic champion Sally Pearson.
American Brianna Rollins took the gold in 12.44.
Porter, the United States-born sprinter whose mother in British, was quickest out of the blocks and held her form to help make up for the disappointment of finishing fourth in Daegu two years ago.
On that occasion she had looked set for a medal only to hit a hurdle and stumble late in the race.
Her London 2012 hopes were derailed by injury, but she looked good through the rounds in Moscow, winning her heat and semi-final before coming within 0.01 of Jessica Ennis-Hill's British record in the final.
