Bella Vistas's Nicholas Hough takes hurdles

Bella Vistas's Nicholas Hough returned to peak form with a second in the men's 110 metre hurdles, pushing US world champion David Oliver to a time of 13.38s at the Sydney Track Classic.

The 20-year-old Hough laboured at the Perth Track Classic and NSW State Championships earlier this year but surged out of the blocks this time, setting up a season's best 13.65s to move to No.4 on the Australian all-time list.
