The Men's 110 metres hurdles at the 2008 Summer Olympics took place on 18–21 August at the Beijing National Stadium.[1][2]

Dayron Robles was the clear favorite, having set the world record just two months earlier. He didn't disappoint leading the semi-final round by almost a tenth of a second, a huge margin on this level.

In the final, Robles was out first, clearly ahead by the first hurdle. From there all he did was run smoothly and pull away to a clear, dominating victory. The race for second place was almost as dominant, the two Americans, David Payne and David Oliver were clearly separating from the others, Payne slightly ahead of Oliver, with only Ladji Doucouré within a stride of Oliver. Doucouré looked to be faster, mainly because of less refined form, but on the final dash to the finish line was clearly gaining on Oliver, who himself was gaining on Payne to make the finish much closer. Robles more than doubled his margin from the semi-final round, almost a quarter of a second ahead of Payne.
