New 110m Men’s Hurdles World Record
  • June 13th, 2008

Dayron Robles is a 22 year old Cuban hurdling athlete, a rising star in the athletics scene, set the world record in the 110 meter hurdles of 12.87 seconds on June 12, 2008 at the “Golden Spike” meeting in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

He finished 0.01 seconds ahead of the previous record of 12.88 seconds set two years ago by Liu Xiang, China’s Olympic and world champion.

His record breaking feat overshadowed Usain Bolt’s victory in the 200m event. Bolt finished in a time of 19.83 seconds which is a leading 200m time of the season

Dayron Robles at the 2006 World Indoor Championships in Moscow he finished second with a new personal best time (indoor) of 7.46 seconds, a time which he has since improved to 7.33, making him the second-fastest ever indoors, behind Colin Jackson.

At the 2008 World Indoor Championships in Valencia he didn’t advance from the heats due to stopping running thinking that fellow hurdler Liu Xiang had made a false start. This was great disappointment for Robles, who had posted 9 of the 11 fastest times of the winter season and was a favorite for winning the gold medal
