Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
The USA, who had provided the winner of five of the previous six finals in this event, suffered a double blow when Crear, the only man under 13 seconds in 1999, was disqualified from his quarter-final for two false starts and Johnson (seeking his third world title) strained a calf muscle warming up for his semi and withdrew. However, the USA still fielded a strong contender in Ross (4th in their Trials and thus competing only because Johnson had a 'wild card’) who was fastest in the quarter-finals (personal best of 13.13) and semis (13.14). Also impressive in the other semi was García, who edged Jackson in 13.18. Both García (with a Central American record) and Ross ran their fastest ever times in the final, but world record holder Jackson used his unrivalled dip to regain the title he last won in 1993. His time was a season’s best of 13.04 and he made history by becoming the first Briton in any event to win a second world title. “Lots of people had written me off as past it but I knew I still had another championship in me,” he said.
 These are the official results of the Men's 110 metres hurdles event at the 1999 IAAF World Championships in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 42 participating athletes, with six qualifying heats, four quarter-finals, two semi-finals and the final held on Wednesday August 25, 1999, at 20:25h.

Men 110m Hurdles Finals

Colin Jackson (GBR), current European champion, achieved the world title once again (previous Stuttgart'93) in a very tight final. The mark was 13.04 after performing a clean race almost without hitting hurdles. With this timing the Briton betters his fourth place in the world ranking and maintains his first place among the Europeans this season. Second place was for Anier Garcia who, with 13.07, beat the Cuban record while American Duane Ross had to settle for the bronze medal (13.22). Schwarthoff (GER), in spite of being in his fourth world final, didn't make it to the podium again.

Men's 110m Hurdles First Round

Overall, the first round didn't produce any big surprises. World record holder Colin Jackson was the fastest qualifier by winning the fifth heat with 13.19, only 8 hundredths of a seconds slower than his season best and looked extremely smooth over the barriers. The fastest hurdler in the world this year American champion Mark Crear also qualified along with his countrymen Duane Ross, Tony Dees and the World reigning champion, Allen Johnson who took it easy taking the third heat with 13.46. 1998 World Cup winner German Falk Balzer won comfortably with 13.35 while the current World junior champion Stanislav Olijars (LAT) ran the second fastest time in a PB of 13.28. Dudley Dorival (HAI) also broke his national record with 13.42. The last qualifier to tonight's second round was Nigerian William Erese who ran 13.76. 1998 Commonwealth champion British Tony Jarrett did not take part in his heat due to injury.
