    Fireworks were expected in the women’s 100m hurdles after Sharika Nelvis had sped to a stadium record of 12.34 in her heat on Friday.  Expectations gathered momentum after Nelvis was the fastest in the semi-finals with a 12.37 run, helped by a perfect 2.0mps breeze on her back. However, the final proved to be anticlimactic as far as times were concerned, although very entertaining as a contest.  The experienced 2008 Olympic champion Dawn Harper Nelson came through to take the win in 12.55, just edging out Keni Harrison by 0.01 with Nelvis third in 12.59.  ”I’m a gamer.” Harper said after her win.  ”I...
