Overview by IAAF 1972_olympic_stadium.jpg 
Milburn and Hill were the fastest in the heats with 13.57 and 13.62, and confirmed their form with semi-final wins of 13.44 and 13.47 respectively. Hill displayed a dreadful start and great fluidity over the hurdles in edging Drut (13.49), while Milburn also came from behind in beating Siebeck (13.58). Milburn, the world record holder and favourite, shot out of the blocks in the final, and ripped to a 2m lead by the sixth hurdle, main- taining half of that lead to the tape, reached in a new world record time of 13.24. Behind him, Hill was second early on, but Drut caught him at the fourth barrier and the Frenchman showed a powerful finish in cutting back Milburn’s lead. Hill edged Davenport for third, though the reigning champion was in silver medal position until the eighth hurdle.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The heavy favorite entering the 1972 season was Rod Milburn, who had been undefeated in 1971 and had broken the world record for the 120 yard hurdles, winning the AAU title in 13.0. By the time of the US Olympic Trials, he had won 27 consecutive finals, but in that final, he hit two hurdles early in the race, and barely made the US team. At the Olympics, however, he re-established his superiority, winning the gold medal comfortably with an auto-timed world record of 13.24 over Guy Drut of France, who would later become a member of the IOC. Defending champion Willie Davenport was in the medal race thru eight hurdles but closed poorly and finished fourth.
