Mixed results for US hurdlers in 5 Nations meet

World indoor champion Lolo Jones stumbled to defeat in the 60-meter hurdles at the Aviva International meet on Saturday, with Britain's Jessica Ennis too strong for the American star for the second straight year.
Ennis, the world heptathlon champion, ran a flawless race at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall to power to victory in 7.99 seconds.
Jones got off to a decent start but hit the second-to-last hurdle with her lead leg to scupper her chances, trailing in fourth in 8.27.
David Oliver of the United States, who was unbeaten outdoors last summer, won the men's 60 hurdles in 7.51 _ his fastest time in a season-opening race.
Germany, Sweden and a Commonwealth Select squad were the other teams in the Five Nations match. Germany won with 61 points.
