Cuba's fit and bulging Dayron Robles will soon bulge on a track near you. The Olympic 110m hurdles champion and
world record holder is recovering from a thigh injury and
will return to the track this summer, his coach tells AFP.
Coach Santiago Antunez says the 22-year-old Robles hopes to compete in five meets in June and July. That includes a chance to beat his own 110m hurdles world record at the Czech Golden Spike meet on June 17 in Ostrava, adds the Czech news agency CTK.
Robles took gold in Beijing and is the world's 110 meters hurdles champion. The sculpted and bespectacled Cuban athlete became a celebrity during the Beijing Olympics and his Olympic-sized bulge was quite the conversation piece on the internets.
