American men sweep Olympic 400m hurdles medals

BEIJING, China Kerron Clement finished second and Bershawn Jackson finished third Monday in the best moment at track and field for an American team that had been struggling.

It was the first sweep in the event since the United States did it in 1960.

Taylor, the 2000 Olympic champion, won his second gold by running a personal-best time of 47.25 seconds. His was the U.S. team's second gold medal of the meet, following Stephanie Brown Trafton's upset victory in the discus throw earlier Monday.
