Bruin Great Michelle Perry Places Fourth In The 100m Hurdles At The Pan Am Games
By: UCLA Athletics

Aug. 11, 2003

On the last day (Saturday, Aug. 9) of track & field competition at the 2003 Pan American Games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, UCLA great Michelle Perry placed fourth in the 100m hurdles.

Perry, also one of the nation's top young heptathletes, placed fourth (the highest placing U. S. athlete) in the 100m hurdles in a time of 12.80 (on Friday in her heat, Perry placed third, also in a time of 12.80).

"I had a good race but got out late at the start," Perry said. "The rest of the race felt really good so if I had a better start, who knows, it would have been great. The humidity is really different here. It's really thick, so it's easy to get dehydrated." During her Bruin career, Perry was three-time Pac-10 100m hurdle champion and in 2001 as a senior at the NCAA Outdoor, she placed second in the heptathlon.

On Thursday at the Pan Am Games, UCLA senior Adia McKinnon, running for Trinidad/Tobago, ran in a 400m heat, placed fourth (54.24) and did not advance to Friday's final.

During the five-day (Aug. 5-9) Pan Am Games, the U. S. won a total of 35 medals - the U. S. women collected 14, including eight gold (Bruin great Joanna Hayes won the 400m hurdles) and the U. S. men won 21 medals, including seven gold.
