EUGENE, OR - JUNE 28: Georganne Moline competes in the Women's 400 Meter Hurdles on day seven of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Team Trials at Hayward Field on June 28, 2012 in Eugene, Oregon. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)

Arizona Wildcats hurdler Georganne Moline placed second in her semi-final heat on Monday to reach the 400-meter finals at the 2012 Olympics. Her time of 54.74 was off yesterday's personal best time of 54.31 that advanced her to the semi-final, but she earned an automatic bid to the finals as a top-two finisher.

Moline will have a couple days of rest until her next race.The gun is set to go off around 12:45 MST on Wednesday, where Moline will chase a medal.

Moline's time was the seventh-best time of the three semi-finals heats of eight runners each. Though it's not an exact science of measuring how well she'll do in the final -- when everyone's going out 110 percent -- five runners ran faster times in the semi-final round than Moline's PR that she set on Sunday afternoon in the preliminaries.

She could be a long-shot, but Moline appears to be peaking at the right time to be in the conversation.
