The race didn't go very well, I had a lot of problems. I almost fell at the first hurdle and was all over the place for the first four or five hurdles until I got back in to a good rhythm.
This was one of the more difficult warmups I did all season, I think once I got my flight itinerary in my email a couple of days ago, I mentally checked out of the competition.
The end result was a win most importantly, the time 13.25 was decent given the circumstances and the fans were very happy, so if they like it, I love it. I got a very nice trophy to boot. The name for it is "The Cup Of The King", which is pretty appropriate, you can't make that up. The top is a solid 24 karat gold dragon, which is hot!
Now it's time to box up the 2008 season and put it on the shelf next to 2007. Wow, what a season.
I loved it here in Shanghai, it's unfortunate that I have to leave, but I'm sure I will be competing at the meet for the rest of my career.
Now on to the fun part. I have to give a shout out to the tailor at Porro & Porro for the outstanding pieces I added to my wardrobe. I had to buy another suitcase in the hotel lobby to carry all this stuff I came up on here. But the hottest thing is the monogram that I have on my shirt sleeves, absolutely killing! It should be a crime. LOL
