    Dawn Harper celebrates after her win at the women's 100m hurdles final at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials.

    Dawn Harper won the 100-meter hurdles in the U.S. track trials Saturday for the chance to defend her Olympic gold medal in the London Games.

    Harper finished in 12.73 seconds. She'll be accompanied to London by runner-up Kellie Wells and third-place Lolo Jones. Wells finished in 12.77, and Jones in 12.86.

    At the Beijing Olympics, Harper ran a personal best 12.54 seconds to beat favorite Jones, who tripped on the second-to-last hurdle and finished seventh.

    Disappointed after her heat finish a day earlier, Jones knelt on the track at Hayward Field after the final with a broad smile on her face.
