DALLAS — Cletus Clark, a bronze medalist in last year's world indoor championships, beat top-ranked Greg Foster for the first time Saturday night in the Dallas Morning News Indoor Games 55-meter hurdles.
World indoor hurdles record-holder Renaldo Nehemiah failed to qualify for the 55-meter final.
Randy Barnes, meanwhile, turned in the fifth-best indoor shotput ever and the second best by an American with a throw of 71 feet 3 inches. Barnes, 21, from Charleston, W.Va., said he had a warm-up effort that was measured at 73-10.
Clark ran a 6.13 to Foster's 6.14, taking a major step toward his goal of making this year's U.S. Olympic team.
Foster, who has dominated the indoor hurdles this season, ran a 7.07 in winning at the Millrose Games Friday night in New York.
