Liu Xiang at the IAAF World Cup

Posted in Track and Field/Athletics at 12:42 pm by Nicole

IAAF.org has posted notes from the pre-competition press conference at the IAAF World Cup in Athletics being held this weekend in the Olympic Stadium in Athens. Liu Xiang is featured prominently, in one of the more in-depth interviews I’ve seen with him in the English-language media this year. Liu is definitely the one to watch in Athens; he’s broken the 110-meter hurdles world record this year already and is being chased by a young Cuban, Dayron Robles, who himself has teased the world record this season. Look out for a scorcher if both men run clean races.
