DAEGU, Korea--Rainier Beach HS grad and two time USA national outdoor champion Ginnie Powell Crawford (left/photo by Paul Merca) scored a narrow victory Wednesday in the 100 meter hurdles over reigning world indoor champion Lolo Jones at the Colorful Daegu Pre Championships Meeting.

Crawford, a former NCAA champion while at the University of Southern California, clocked 12.77 to defeat Jones, who recovered from a very poor start, by one-hundredth, while Canada’s Perdita Felicien took third in 12.80.

Former Washington Husky Jordan Boase, who was originally on the meet's start list for the 400 meters, finished eighth in the 200 meters, running 21.38, in a race won by Oregon's Ryan Bailey in 20.58.

Jamaica's Usain Bolt, the headliner of the Daegu meet, set a world-leading mark of 9.86 to decisively defeat compatriot Michael Frater, who finished second with 10.15.

Next year's IAAF World Track & Field Championships will be contested in late August at this venue.
