Since last week we took a long, hard look at some of the USA's finest Olympic track and field athletes, let's give equal time to some other nation's. One athlete to watch next month in Beijing is Dayron Robles of Cuba. The 21-year-old is also quite fit in all the right places and apparently bulging with muscle under his form-fitting athleticwear.
Robles holds the world's record in the 110m hurdles with 12.87-secs. His main rival will be a hometown favorite, Beijing's defending champion Liu Xiang, who is China's first and only male Olympic gold medalist in athletics. Actually, Robles and Liu are frenemies and/or very friendly rivals. These photos are from March and the IAAF World Championships in Valencia where the two were inseparable during the 60m hurdle qualifications. Unfortunately at that time, Dayron Robles missed his qualification and Liu is seen "comforting" him. At least that's how the photos are described.
While we're on the subject of form-fitting athelticwear ..
