Liu will spice up rivalry, says Robles

OLYMPIC hurdles champion Dayron Robles says the return from injury of Chinese rival Liu Xiang will spice up competition.

Robles said that Liu's recovery from a foot injury "will make 110-meter hurdles more tasty, put salsa on it." The Cuban broke the world record last year, finishing in 12.87 seconds to beat Liu's mark. Robles won gold at the Beijing Olympics after Liu withdrew injured. Robles says he wants to break the 60-meter indoor world record. He is ranked No. 1 with a time of 7.33.
