Set your TiVos. The XIII World Athletics Championships will be held next week in Daegu, South Korea from August 27th to September 4th. Cuba has announced its sporno-tastic and testosterone heavy roster will be lead by R20 faves and Olympic medalists Leonel Suarez and Dayron Robles, according to Radio Havana and Guantanamo TV.
Along Suarez, his teammate Yordanis Garcia, javelin and runner-up in the previous event Guillermo Martínez, Victor Moya in high jump, Carlos Veliz, Misleydis Gonzalez and Mailin Vargas in shot put, Yipsi Moreno in hammer, and Yanet Cruz in javelin will also depart this week to the Korean appointment. Yoandri Betanzos ....among others, complete the official roster.
Guillermo Martínez is seen above at the 2009 Worlds in Berlin—where he famously performed a few backflips after winning silver in the javelin.
Dayron Robles won gold in the 110m hurdles at the Beijing Olympics. Robles' Olympic-sized bulge became quite the conversation topic across the internets. More recently: Robles beat hurdles super hotness David Oliver on August 5 in London. Robles, Oliver and China's Liu Xiang are expected to fight it out for the gold in Daegu.
