Robles Breaks Liu Xiangs' Hurdle Record-12.87 in Ostrava!

| 0 Comments

June 12, 2008. Ostrava, Czech Republic-the Golden Spike Grand Prix-IAAF World Athletics Tour--

In a meet where Usain Bolt was to be the story, a hurdler and a hour run put Mr. Bolt in the small print! Two world records in one afternoon!

In only his third race of the year, Dayron Robles of Cuba has set a world record! In the lead from the start, Robles took .01 seconds off the previous record of Liu Xiang of China, set on July 11, 2007 in Lausanne. The Cuban hurdler ran 12.87 today, in Ostrava, in front of a nearly packed house!

Robles, who had false started out of the World Indoors this past March, is on a roll. Today, in his world record, he defeated Terrance Trammell, who ran 13.21, and Sergiv Demidyuk of the Ukraine, who ran 13.42.

The Golden Spike is one of the few meetings where the hour run is featured. Last year, Mr. Gebrselassie broke the world record, this year, it was Tire Tune of Ethiopia,w ho added 177 meters to the previous record of 18,340m, set by Tegla Laroupe of Kenya in Borgholzhausen, Germany a decade ago, for a new world record of 18, 517 meters in 60 minutes!

For more, read on!

Usain Bolt, fresh off his world record for 100 meters, ran a super 19.82 for the 200 meters, winning by .35 seconds over Brian Zingai of Zimbawe in his first 200 meters. Mr. Bolt has been training soley for the 100 meters, but it is obvious that man can run over 200 meters.

Jeremy Wariner ran a scintillating 300 meters in 31.72, showing that he can surely run a 43 second flat 400 meters.

Abumaker Kaki Khamis ran a fine 1:43.80, leading eight under 1;46 here today. Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya defeated Tariku Bekele, 13:02.06 to 13:03.52, with seventeen under 13:17.2.

Tirunesh Dibaba, not recovered from her world record last weekend in the 5,000 meters, ran a comfortable 31:03.3 to lead six Ethiopians under 31:07 and the Olympic standard, 11 in the race were under 31:40. Dibaba did not have the Olympic
standard for 10,000 meters. RBR predicts Ms. Dibaba will double in Beijing.
