In a special episode of the World Athletics podcast, guest host Joanna Hayes is joined by fellow hurdles greats Gail Devers, Sally Pearson and Derval O'Rourke.
When Sally Pearson abruptly announced her retirement last August, it seemed Australian women’s hurdling would be waiting some time for another athlete capable of reaching global championship finals.
Every athlete embarks upon a unique journey, but for World Championships fourth-place finisher Tobi Amusan, her unorthodox arrival upon the hurdles is a story worth explaining.
European U20 bronze medallist Markus Rooth smashed the Norwegian U20 decathlon in Oslo on Sunday (28), moving to No.2 on the world U20 all-time list with a score of 8238.
Britany Anderson didn’t just beat a world U20 record this year; she broke the curse on age-group sprint hurdles bests.
The ‘supermom’ theme that had been set at the start of the championships by some of the first few winners of women’s titles had a reprise in the final individual track event of the week.
Overcoming the odds has been one of the strongest traits of 2015 world champion Danielle Williams of Jamaica. The 27-year-old, who will be competing in her fourth IAAF World Championships in Doha, recalls her journey leading up to her triumph in Beijing.
.When Danielle Williams won the world 100m hurdles title four years ago, it was seen as one of the biggest surprise performances of the championships. Now, however, she heads to Doha as one of the favourites in her event.
Dalilah Muhammad’s world 400m hurdles record of 52.20 and Brittany Anderson’s world U20 100m hurdles records of 12.79 and 12.71 have been ratified.
When she crossed the finish line first in the 100m hurdles race at Lima’s Videna Stadium, Andrea Carolina Vargas made history.
