Tasha Danvers leaps to bronze for the Union Jack

Tasha Danvers won bronze in the women’s 400-meter intermediate hurdles event. The Lady Trojan, running for Great Britain, posted a personal best time of 53.84. Danvers, who turns 31 years old next month, received her first Olympic medal, after failing to capture any in the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games. American Sheena Tosta (UCLA) took the silver, with Jamaica’s Melaine Walker winning gold. Trojans now have 8 individual medals in Beijing, with Allyson Felix set to run in a medal race tomorrow.

Tasha Danvers is a former Pac 10 champion, and national champion in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles in 2000. She still owns two standing records at USC.
