ZURICH, Switzerland--Rainier Beach HS graduate Ginnie Crawford (left/photo by Paul Merca) finished seventh in the women's 100 meter hurdles at the Weltklasse meeting in the Swiss city.

Crawford, a former NCAA and USA champion in this event who did not make her third world championship squad, ran 13.12, as Australia's Sally Pearson, who won the world title in Daegu last week, continued her winning ways, stopping the clock at 12.52.

Reigning Olympic champion Dawn Harper, who finished third in Daegu, was second in 12.81, while Canada's Phylicia George took third in 12.84.

The Samsung Diamond League finals in the women's 100 hurdles takes place next week at the Van Damme meet.

Nine winners from Daegu emerged victorious in the penultimate meet of the 2011 Samsung Diamond League season highlighted by wins by world champs Yohan Blake in the 100; Vivian Cheruiyot in the 5000; Brittney Reese in the long jump; and 100 meter champ Carmelita Jeter in the 200.

The Samsung Diamond League concludes its season at next week's Van Damme meeting in Brussels.
