World Rankings Update - Hurdles

Both of the hurdle races are outdoor-specific events. While the high hurdles do have some carryover from the indoor season, the women's side of the event doesn't have much.

110m Hurdles
1. David Oliver, USA, 48
2. Terrence Trammell, USA, 40
3. Joel Brown, USA, 23
4. Shamar Sands, BAH, 18
4. Evgeniy Borisov, RUS, 18
Oliver already has two quick outdoor races under his belt. The rest are ranked on carryover marks from the indoor season.

400m Hurdles
1. Tristan Thomas, AUS, 17
There has been so little high-level competition in this event that it's pointless to list anyone besides the leader.

100m Hurdles
1. LoLo Jones, USA, 28
2. Sally McLellan, AUS, 24
3. Jenny Adams, USA, 10
4. Brigitte Foster-Hylton, JAM, 7
4. Veronica Torr, NZL, 7
Jones is ranked on her two best indoor times, while the rest earned their spots from two Australian meets on the World Athletics Tour.

400m Hurdles
Literally nothing of any importance has happened yet.
