Checking in on athletes from the District, Maryland and Virginia in the London Olympics

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Kellie Wells (Midlothian, Va.) posted the third-fastest time overall throughout qualifying in the 100-meter hurdles, and that’s where she finished in Tuesday’s final. Wells took the bronze medal with a time of 12.48 seconds, edging highly touted teammate Lolo Jones for the final spot on the podium.

OTHERS OF NOTE

Matthew Centrowitz (Arnold, Md.) finished fourth in the 1,500 meter final, his time of 3:35.17 leaving him out of the medals by four hundredths of a second.

The U.S. Elliott 6m boat skippered by Anna Tunnicliffe and crewed by Debbie Capozzi (both of Old Dominion) lost its first two races against Finland in the best-of-five quarterfinals.
