Overview by IAAF  1952_olympic_stadium.jpg
Dillard equalled Porter’s Olympic record of 13.9 in the first round, an auto-timed 14.01, with Davis clocking 14.0 (14.23) in his heat, almost four tenths quicker than the next best in the field. Dillard then won his semi-final in 14.0 (14.14) 3m ahead of Barnard – 14.2 (14.44). Davis won the other semi, easing up in 14.4 (14.62) after an atrocious start. Davis had a false start in the final, and while he ran well at the second attempt, he was a yard behind Dillard, a superb starter, by the first hurdle. Davis closed on Dillard, almost catching him, but Dillard was technically faultless. Davis’s rush was affected by hitting the seventh and ninth hurdles. Dillard won by three-quarters of a metre, looking entirely unruffled by the pressure he had been under, with Barnard 4m behind, well clear of Bulanchik for third.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
In 1948, Harrison Dillard had been a huge favorite until he faltered in the US Olympic Trials, hitting a hurdle and not finishing the final. He had then entered the 100 metres, made the team in that event and won the gold medal. He continued hurdling and was still considered the best in the world. The world record holder was Dick Attlesey (USA), but he hurt his foot in the heats of the US Olympic Trials, and did not make the team. But led by Dillard, the Americans again swept the medals, as they had in 1948. The finish was close between Dillard and Jack Davis, Davis having been slowed by a poor start, likely due to being charged with a false start.
