Turkish runner Nevin Yanıt qualified for the semi-finals of the 100-meter hurdle at the 2012 London Olympics after winning her first-round heat on Monday, clocking in at 12.70 seconds.

Yanıt in 2010 emerged triumphant from the 20th European Athletics Championships in Barcelona, where she clinched the gold in the women's 100-meter hurdle, becoming the first Turk to win a medal at the event. She is now the Turkish athlete closest to winning a gold medal at the London Olympics as the country has been so far unable to win a single medal at the competition.
