Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
It was one of the great human interest stories in athletics history, two of the medals in this event falling to women who had faced potentially fatal health problems and yet returned to competition at the highest level. For them to win or lose a race remained a challenge but was hardly a life and death issue compared to what they had overcome. Both came away delighted and their post-race embrace was moving indeed. Devers, once stricken with the life threatening Graves’ Disease, not only won her third world hurdles title but smashed her American record of 12.46 by 9/100ths for the world’s quickest time for seven years. She also moved ahead of Jackie Joyner-Kersee with a women’s record five World golds. But it was by no means a perfect run as she struck the final hurdle and nearly fell headlong. She managed to recover although the stumble must have added several hundredths to her time. Alozie set an African record of 12.44 for second while breast cancer sufferer Engquist, who faced a further course of chemotherapy just a few days later, couldn’t believe how fast she had run – a Swedish record of 12.47 for the bronze medal. Believing 12.60 to be her limit at that time the 1991 and 1997 champion had burst into tears after clocking 12.50 in her semi and this was a further bonus. The standard was so high that Shishigina, the pre-Seville favourite, ran 12.51 but came away empty-handed.
 These are the official results of the Women'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 Saturday August 28, 1999, at 20:05h.

Women's 100m Hurdles Final

Gail Devers won her third world title (after Stuttgart '93 and Goteborg '95) clocking 12.37, a new personal best and 1999 world leading performance. With this victory Devers has accumulated a total of seven World Championship medals, five gold among them: 3 in 100m hurdles, 1 in 4x100, 1 in 100m. This final was the fastest in history. Devers has also won two Olympic and two World Indoor Championship titles. The silver medal was taken by Glory Alozie (NGR) repeating her placing at the World Indoor Championships earlier this year. The Nigerian ran 12.44, a season's best and equalled her own African record. Twice World and Olympic champion, Sweden's Ludmila Engquist won the bronze medal with 12.47, establishing a new national record. The Kazak Olga Shishigina who headed the '99 world ranking until today, came fourth with 12.51.

All the favourites qualified for tomorrow's final. Double Olympic and World champion Ludmila Engquist (SWE) won the first semi-final clocking 12.50, her season's best.

Glory Alozie (NGR) came second with a time of 12.61 while France's Patricia Girard was third (12.76). The second semi-final was taken by Gail Devers (USA) with 12.70, who is bidding for her third World title. This time was far from her season's best, 12.53, achieved in the quarter-final. Olga Shishigina (KZK), World indoor champion and fastest athlete this season, came second with 12.75. Dionne Ross (JAM) also qualified in this heat with 12.79, leaving out Aliuska Lopez (CUB), third in Panamerican Games.

Women 100m Hurdles - First Round

The three favourites for the medals carried out the best performances in the heats. Ludmila Engquist (SWE) was the fastest with 12.62 in heat 6. The fastest heat was the fourth, won by Glory Alozie (NGR) with 12.67. This heat was the only one where the four direct qualifiers clocked inside 13 seconds. The '99 world lead and indoor World Champion, Olga Shishigina (KZK) ran 12.70 but would seem capable of running much faster. Gail Devers (USA) won the second heat with 12.80, the fourth best performance overall. The unique favourite in trouble was the Canadian Keturah Anderson, fourth in '99 world year list, who qualified only as a fastest loser.
