The World Athletics Championships are over, but not without controversy in the men’s 110 meter hurdles.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – The World Athletics Championships are over, but not without controversy in the men’s 110-meter hurdles.
Grant Holloway and Trey Cunningham took first and second place with times of 13.03 and 13.08, respectively.
The race could have been a success were it not for a false start by Oregon receiver hurdler Devon Allen, who finished second in the world.
The red card was met with lustful boos from the crowd.
The native pensioner took his time to leave the track, obviously he wasn’t happy with the call.
In June, Allen ran a personal best of 12.84 in the 110-meter hurdles in New York City. It is the third fastest time in the world of all time.
Allen will soon turn to the NFL. He plans to report to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles begin practice July 27. All is a receiver.
