Felix Sanchez Breaks 400m Hurdles Indoor Record – Again!
February 20, 2012Posted by on
And Felix Sanchez does it again!
The 2004 Athens Olympic Champion rewrote his 400m indoor hurdles record in France yesterday. The evergreen Sanchez ran an impressive 48.78s to better his previous mark of 49.25s.
He demolished the field as he streaked to an early lead. The American-born hurdler was the first to cut to the inner lane, as his shell-shocked opponents trailed a few meters behind.
To those of you thinking that I’ve made a typographical error in saying “400m indoor hurdles,” think again. Sanchez is the most prestigious name in the rarely run discipline. With his impeccable hurdling pedigree and fearlessness, Sanchez is tailor-made for the event.
Athletics is a physically taxing event. Despite sustaining injuries in the past few years, it’s good to see the 34-year old Sanchez running faster. To the young guns of the intermediate hurdles, watch out for Felix Sanchez come Olympics time.
