Liu Xiang in Eugene

Posted in Track and Field/Athletics at 5:30 pm by Nicole

The CSB was in Eugene, Oregon today to watch Liu Xiang compete at the Prefontaine Classic, the most prestigious international professional track meet in the United States. It wasn’t quite as pretty as the 12.92 in New York – the weather was cool and cloudy, it had rained for most of the day yesterday and part of the morning today, and so the conditions weren’t perfect for sprinting. But it was still a victory, albeit under slightly scary circumstances – American Dominique Arnold stumbled on a hurdle and appeared to almost obstruct Liu in the adjacent lane. France’s Ladji Doucoure ran a respectable race – the 2005 world champion is on his way back after a ten-month injury break. Overall, it was a great day at the races.
