Ginnie Powell 7th in Lausanne; Bernard Lagat 8th in 800...

LAUSANNE, Switzerland--In their first race since competing in Eugene at the USA Championships, hurdler Ginnie Powell from Rainier Beach HS finished seventh in the 100 meter hurdles, and former Washington State All-American Bernard Lagat finished eighth in the 800 meter run at the Lausanne Super Grand Prix meet under rainy conditions.

Australia's Sally McLellan won the race in 12.60, while Powell, who was still shaking off the effects of traveling from the United States ran 12.83.
