By From page B2 | June 30, 2014

SACRAMENTO — Devon Allen won the 110-meter hurdles in 13.16 seconds at the U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Sunday after leader Ronnie Ash fell midway through the race.

Allen, the college champion who doubles as a wide receiver at Oregon, edged Ryan Wilson by two-hundredths of a second for his first U.S. title.

It was the final race of the four-day meet and easily the closest. The difference between first and sixth place was 12-hundredths of a second.

Curtis Mitchell won the 200, and Jeneba Tarmoh took the women’s 200.

Ajee’ Wlson, a two-time indoor champion in the women’s 800, added the outdoor title to her resume. Wilson’s time of 1:58.70 is the fastest by an American this year and the third-fastest in the world in 2014.
