IAAF World Indoor Championships – Hurdles Wrap Day 1

Now if there is one event at these IAAF World Indoor Championships which deserves front page spotlight that is the men’s 60m Hurdles. Indeed it has all the ingredients for a succulent recipe.

Throw in the defending champion, the national hero for over 1 billion people, a former World outdoor record holder, World champion and Olympic champion; add to that the reigning Olympic champion and reigning World outdoor record holder and mix with the two-time winner of the event indoors and the season’s fastest hurdler you can get nothing but an exciting combination.

Liu Xiang, albeit recovering from a tendon injury, Dayron Robles and Terrence Trammell haven’t competed in the same race since the Osaka World Championships final in 2007 and it may be that Doha will offer the fans what they have missed out on for almost 3 years if all three make it to Sunday’s final……Read More

IAAF World Indoor Championships – Day 1 Wrap

With a schedule mostly full of preliminary rounds, Friday’s action at the Aspire Dome, where a total of 144 nations have turned up to compete, did not lack for drama.

Defending champions and World record holders flirted with elimination–and in some cases were eliminated. Several national records were established, many of them behind the qualifiers, and slightly more than half of a Heptathlon was completed.

The biggest scare of the day came in the women’s Pole Vault qualifying. As is her habit, defending champion and World record holder Yelena Isinbayeva passed all opening heights up to the automatic qualifier which was to be 4.60m. At 4.45m, however, only six women remained in contention, so it fell to Isinbayeva to clear 4.55m and complete the final. ….Read More
