Ennis beats Jones in 60 hurdles in Glasgow

Ennis beats Jones in 60 hurdles in Glasgow

Heptathlon specialist Jessica Ennis ran a British record time in the 60-meter hurdles to beat world champion Lolo Jones at the Aviva International athletics meet on Saturday.
The world heptathlon champion ran 7.95 seconds at the indoor championships to beat her personal best in the event by 0.17 and edge the United States' Jones by two hundredths of a second.
Jones blamed her second-place finish on jet lag but Ennis says "to win and to break a British record is really something special."
David Oliver of the United States won the men's 60 hurdles in 7.58, 0.10 ahead of Germany's Helge Schwarzer.
