Whoever ever tried a hurdlers race certainly knows how fundamental the hurdles rythmic is; sometimes for pace reasons it is possible to fall on a hurdle or to lose precious time.
This is definitely something that should be reminded to the organizers of the ”Jesse Owens Track Classic” meeting which took place this weekend. In fact, they committed a tremendous error by misplacing the seventh hurdle, thus breaking the rythmic of all the athletes.
The result? Only two athletes out of seven reached the end.
Fortunately the athletes did not hurt themselves, but we hope that the organizers learned the lesson and that undersood which are the signs to place the hurdles on!
