The 110m hurdles, the Boris Hanzekovic Memorial Race, is a trademark of the Zagreb IAAF Grand Prix. Harald Edletzberger, Meeting Manager, confirmed that fans will be able to enjoy it as usual, just like the women’s 100m hurdles.
[:]Cuba’s Dayron Robles, who broke the world record in the 110m hurdles (12.87) in Ostrawa at the beginning of June, and who ran under 13 seconds six times this summer, is coming to Zagreb for the third time in a row. With Robles at the track, who is expected to be pushed by Maurice Wignall, the meeting record of 12.98, set by Mark Crear in 1999, will definitely be challenged. We shall also se a good race in the women’s 100m hurdles. A strong line-up will be led by Dawn Harper of the USA and Canada’s Priscilla Lopes-Schliep. Competition will be fierce, as Edletzberger is bringing three more finalists from Beijing; Harper and Lopes-Schliep will be challenged by Damu Cherry, Deloreen Ennis-London and Sarah Claxton.
