Pozzi tore his hamstring a month ago and couldn't even push out of the blocks.
Xiang apparently injured too

Hope I'm not saying that about Phillips in a few minutes.....
They shouldn't have been competing because they'll do themselves more damage.
And its disappointing for the fans to see them at half-mast.

The reason I say that is I'm not sure he is tall enough to ever make a great 110 hurdler. I think he should think about moving up to 400 hurdles.
Terrific performance here, nonetheless.

Two inches taller than Colin Jackson.
More than two inches taller than Allen Johnson.
Slightly taller than Renaldo Nehemiah.
Taller than Rod Milburn.
I don't see any reason to assume that Lawrence's height will be a limiting factor on the path to 110mH greatness.
