Ex-Oklahoma Baptist star headed to Olympic Games

SHAWNEE (AP) — A former Oklahoma Baptist track star will represent Jamaica in the 100-meter hurdles at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Latoya Greaves placed second in the finals of the Olympic Trials in Jamaica Sunday night with a time of 12.77 seconds.

Greaves won the NAIA national championship for Oklahoma Baptist in that event in 2006.

With Greaves, Oklahoma Baptist now has at least three representatives at the London games.

Former standout Nickeisha Wilson also will represent Jamaica in the 400 hurdles and Ines Remersaro will represent Uruguay in women's swimming.
