Shuttle Hurdle World Record Holders

Today at Penn Relays, my team of Joel Brown, Aries Merritt and Aub-RIDA ran 53.31 in the Olympic Development section of the shuttle hurdle relays, setting a new World Record. That time bettered the previous record that the team of Merritt, Anwar Moore, Ron Bramlett and Ryan Wilson had when they ran 53.38 at the DN Galan Super Grand Prix in Stockholm, Sweden in 2007. The split the announcer called out on the PA system for me was 13 flat. I thought that I could go out and split the world record, but it didn't happen, but the ultimate goal was still achieved. I ran a very smooth and clean race. It is definitely a nice birthday present.

My weekend of competition is officially over, so I am going to sit back and watch my training partners do their thing in the open 110 hurdles tomorrow afternoon. I will post the video up a little later.
