1904 Olympic Games St. Louis, United States - Men's 110 m Hurdles

 

 

Host City: St. Louis, United States Format: Top two in each heat advanced to the final.
Date Started: September 3, 1904  
Date Finished: September 3, 1904  
(Competitors: 6; Countries: 2; Finalists: 4)  
    Venue(s): Francis Field, Washington University, St. Louis
Overview by IAAF  
Schule, the 1903 US Champion, and Castleman, the 1904 US Champion won the heats in 16.2. In the final Schule and Shideler ran together for half the race, and then Schule drew away to win handily from Shideler, with Ashburner a metre in third place. The slow times were due to a headwind.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
America's top hurdler was Edwin Clapp, IC4A champion in both 1903 and 1904, who entered but did not appear. This left the favorites role to Thad Shideler who in June had equaled Al Kraenzlein's world record of 15.0, only to see it not stand up because only two watches registered a time. Fred Schule won the first heat, and Frank Castleman nipped Shideler in the 2nd heat. This gave the final the last two AAU champions (Schule - 1903 and Castleman - 1904) in addition to Shideler. In the final, Castleman was never a factor, as Schule and Shideler fought it out, the former winning by about a two yards.
