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.

Vamos, Felix!
