Andrew Pozzi: The Demolition Man
March 12, 2012Posted by on
The way Britain’s Andrew Pozzi cleared the final barrier was one for the books. Hurdling coaches always emphasize aggressiveness. But perhaps the exuberant Pozzi was a bit too harsh on the tenth hurdle!

Britain’s talented hurdler, Pozzi, ran the race of his life in Istanbul. After narrowly edging out Athens Olympic Champion Liu Xiang in the heats and notching an impressive personal best (7.56s), The Demolition Man placed a hard fought fourth in the final. The young Briton stopped the clock in 7.58s, behind the newly-minted World Indoor Champion, Aries Merritt (7.44s), Liu (7.49s) and fellow youngster Pascal Martinot-Lagarde (7.53s).
Congratulations to Andrew “The Demolition Man” Pozzi for a memorable debut on the world stage!
