How NOT to Hurdle!
January 30, 2011Posted by on
The popularity of the 110m high hurdles has grown exponentially since Liu Xiang’s Olympic gold in 2004. Young athletes in China, as well as the rest of Asia, comprise the next generation of hurdling champions.
The sprint hurdles is the most popular athletics event in China, somewhat similar to the premiere status of the javelin throw in Finland.
Or maybe not.
Joe Esposito’s “You’re the Best Around” provides an apt, if not utterly ironic background music to this foolishness!
You are a disgrace to the sport!
