[ 2007-06-04 11:08 ]

6月3日,在美国田径大奖赛男子110米栏的比赛中,中国飞人刘翔又一次惊人爆发。在众多美国选手的围攻下,刘翔以12秒92的优异成绩夺冠,打破赛会纪录,并创造了今年该项目的世界最好成绩。

World 110m hurdles record holder Liu Xiang of China lifted the title with a season best result at the New York Grand Prix of Reebok on Saturday.

The 23-year-old finished in a time of 12.92 seconds to lead as the best result of the season 2007, which also broke the 13.03-second record in the event set by Allen Johnson in 2005.

United States hurdlers Terrence Trammell, the Olympic runner-up, grabbed the silver in 12.95 seconds with Ryan Wilson third in 13.02 seconds.

Dominique Arnold was disqualified for false start at the second whistle.

Liu came from behind to go head to head with Trammell until the eighth hurdle and capitalized his overwhelming capacity of sprint to touch the finishing line first with a slim of edge.

Liu ran in New York in 2005 as the new Olympic champion, losing to veteran Allen Johnson.

The next five athletes were David Payne, Aries Merrit, David Oliver, Anwar Moore and Maurice Wignall.

The Shanghai star said his most important goal is winning in the Olympics next year but that he is more focused on Osaka at the moment.

He won world championship bronze and silver medals in 2003 and 2005 and is determined to win the top prize this time.
