The main photo above shows Lauryn during the heats of the women's 100m at the 2007

World Championships in Osaka. The inset picture shows the closing few metres of the final

with Williams pictured on the far right. It was an incredibly close finish to the final and Lauryn,

who was defending the title she had won two years earlier in Helsinki, was to agonisingly miss out

on the gold medal, despite clocking the identical time as Jamaica's Veronica Campbell (2nd left).

Lauryn's compatriot Carmelita Jeter (far left) won the bronze, her time of 11.02 secs just 1 hundredth

of a second back on Campbell and Williams. Lauryn later teamed up with Allyson Felix,

Mikele Barber and Torri Edwards to win gold for the USA in the 4x100m relay.
