Jeshua Anderson Wins Third NCAA Title

Not even the weather can slow down Jeshua Anderson, who despite a hour long weather delay and a wet track claimed his third NCAA title in the 400-meter hurdles.

Anderson won the race with a time of 48.56, over half a second faster than the second place finisher. It was the third time this season Anderson ran a sub 49.00 intermediate hurdle, the only NCAA athlete to do so. He becomes the third person to win the men's 400-meter hurdles three times.

Anderson dominated the race from the start, eating up the stagger quickly, holding strong through the middle of the race before pulling away over the final two hurdles. 

While it was Anderson's final race in a WSU uniform, it is far from the end of his track career. I would expect Anderson to turn pro shortly, with a medal at the 2012 Olympics the next goal in sight.

If you missed the race, or just want to re-watch Anderson dominate, I uploaded the video for your viewing pleasure.
