Top Hurdlers at Athletissima, by Alfons Juck, note by Larry Eder: Aries Merritt, 2012 London Olympics, photo by

Athletissima is planning for Thursday top sprints but also the 110 m hurdles is promising something very special. In Athletissima history already once world record was broken. In 2006 Liu Xiang clocked 12.88, still the second fastest ever time. This year all olympic medalists will run and specially in-shape Aries Merritt well rested in his first race since olympic win. Also Jason Richardson and Jamaican promise for the future Hansle Parchment. In the field also European champion Sergey Shubenkov who runs fast after the Games and US David Oliver who last week improved his season best in France to 13.07. Not missing in the field third US Olympian Jeff Porter. The best healthy ones are in this race as Liu Xiang and Dayron Robles are not running due to injuries or even subsequent surgeries as in the Chinese case.
