KINGSTON, Jamaica (Sporting Alert) — Brigitte Foster-Hylton posted a productive 12.85 seconds, running into a -3.2 m/s headwind to win her semi-final heat of the women’s 100m hurdles at the Jamaica Championships on Sunday.

The 2009 world champion has been running into fine form this season and she looks in the mood for a fast time – should the wind not affect her run come the final.

Latoya Greaves finished close to her in second place at 12.86 with season veteran Vonette Dixon running 13.03 for third in the heat.

Shermaine Williams won the second semi-final with a time of 12.96 (0.6) and she pulled Indira Spence, who clocked the same time as her.

Kimberly Laing was third in 12.97.

Andrea Bliss (13.11) and veteran Delloreen Ennis-London (13.18) also booked their places into tonight’s decider.

Eyes will also be on the men’s and women’s 200m, which will see Yohan Blake, Usain Bolt, Warren Weir and Nickel Ashemeade battling for the men’s crown, amongst others, while the match up between 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Veronica Campbell-Brown on the women’s side will be equally exciting.
