Four years after her dream of Olympic gold crashed down at the penultimate barrier in the 100m hurdles final in Beijing, LoLo Jones is back on the winning track. The 29-year-old American had surgery last August to fix a tethered spinal cord. Last Saturday, she won the 50m hurdles at the US Open Meeting in New York. "It's all been worth it," Jones said.

Asafa Powell, who missed the World Championships last summer because of injury, won the 50m in New York, clocking 5.64sec.
