Imagine a race where you can count the number of steps from start to finish and hitting every single one of them with maximum power, precision, & speed marks the difference between a career, a shot, a life changing performance, an Olympic team, a dream - or none of those things. Now, add 10 barriers & 7 competitors. That's the pressure some athletes choose. Nothing matches the energy of sprinting and hurdling and in an Olympic year, we'll be treated to a lot of it.
