There's an actual reason to pay attention to the Women's Hurdles at the Olympics and her name is Michelle Jenneke. She's a hot runner for the Australian team. I would love to visit her down under.
A short Chinese Sprinter who had difficulty jumping over hurdles in a 110m race decided to take matters into his own hand and just run through the hurdles. I used to do the same thing... on the NES Power Pad, Track & Field... when I had to go against Cheetah.
