Overview by IAAF  
The event was weakened by the absence through injury of defending champion Liu Xiang and the injury to new world record holder Robles. The Cuban failed to finish his semi-final, at which stage Brathwaite was the fastest, having improved his Barbadian record to 13.18. Payne, Brathwaite and Trammell were drawn in lanes 3-4-5 in the final, and for almost the entire race it was difficult to determine who held the lead. All three went across the third hurdle in 4.61 seconds, and it was only at the sixth hurdle that Payne could be seen to have dropped back slightly. At the 10th barrier Brathwaite held a lead of 0.03 over Trammell and was 0.04 ahead of Payne, but the Americans closed sharply, and it took the judges some minutes to decide that the Barbadian was the winner, again with a national record. Sharman edged Wignall for fourth, after being in contention with the top three for half the race. Brathwaite became the first athlete from Barbados ever to win a medal in the World Championships, while Trammell won his fifth global silver medal since 2000.
