UConn alum Phylicia George ran a personal best 12.65 in today's Olympic 100M hurdle semifinal, qualifying for tonight's final round. George's time was the best of any non-automatic qualifier (the top two finishers in each heat automatically advance) and bested American Lolo Jones by .06. She will compete in the finals later tonight. The race begins at 4 ET.

UPDATE: George finished sixth in the 100M hurdle finals in London this evening. She tied her personal best time from earlier, running a 12.65. Australia's Sally Pearson won the gold.
