Jamaica: Jamaica’s Megan Tapper takes bronze in 100m hurdles at Tokyo Olympics

National champion Megan Tapper secured Jamaica’s fourth medal at the Tokyo Olympics with a bronze in the women’s 100m hurdles.
 
The bronze came a day after Elaine Thompson-Herah stunned with an Olympic record of 10.61  to retain her 100m title, leading an all-Jamaican podium.

Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico won the gold, powering ahead of American Keni Harrison.

That kept the United States out of the win column at the Olympic track meet for yet another session.

Camacho-Quinn finished in 12.37 seconds for a .15 second win over the world record holder, Harrison. Tapper clocked 12.55 seconds for her third place.

Britany Anderson, the second Jamaican in the final and the world Under-20 record-holder, clipped a hurdle and finished eighth in 13.24.
