Jamaica's Ackera Nugent (left) crosses the finish line in second place in 12.96 seconds behind the USA's Grace Stark (right), who won in 12.83 seconds in Stage Two on the women's 100m hurdles final at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina, yesterday. Australia's Sophie White (centre) finished in third place in 13.01 seconds. However, Nugent was awarded the bronze medal as the medal placing comprises a combination of times done in stages one and two. White won the silver medal and Stark won gold.
