  • Felix Sánchez’s Winning Streak

    He's not Edwin Moses yet--by a long shot--but the world champ is now up to 27 straight wins. Undefeated this year and last; last loss on July 2, 2001. Here's a trivia question for you: without looking, who was the last man to beat him?

    It was in Zagreb, Croatia. (that's not a hint)

    Oh, you mean Felix Sanchez, T&FN's Male Athlete of the Year for 2003 ?

    Sorry El G, you're great too, but it's Felix Time.

      Without looking, I would have guessed Angelo Taylor, Llewelyn Herbert, Hadi Al-Somaly, or Stephane Diagana.....

      I've just looked up the results and.......I was wrong on all acounts!

        It's the Japanese guy, and I'm not going digging for his name. Eurosport has mentioned that pretty consistently.

          OK, "Japanese guy" it is! Doesn't anybody wanna play trivia?

              I am predicting trouble for him in the event next year. A dangerous newcomer to the event who may challenge him next year is the Jamaican Danny McFarlane. The Sydney 400m finalist in his first year in the event performed creditably to finish 4th at the World Championship and 3rd at the Grand Prix Final. He obviously is a very poor hurdler but is just as fast as Sanchez at 400 metres. If this guy does some serious work on his hurdling, come next season he will be a real handfull.

                And, of course, there is the oldtimer referred to in a couple of other threads-).

                    What about Iakovakis? He gets better year after year and still very young. Big favorite for Athens next year. He was born and grew up by the way in Lehena, very close to ancient Olympia. The Gods are watching him

                      Marek Plawgo, Poland.
                      Saw him win ECU23 in 48.4
                      had injuries for most of the season, but won indoor 400m europeans in 45.1
                      he´s only 22

                          I wish Danny the best but I just don't see him improving his hurdling a whole lot. Of course I sincerely hope he proves me wrong because if he does get his hurdling right he is a 47.5 man for sure. We saw what Hemmings did in 1996 by improving her hurdling
                          why don't people pronounce vowels anymore

                            I wish... But it seems he's had too many injuries lately, plus he would need to work more on his strength (he's incredibly thin, especially in the upper body, for a world-class sprinter). He ran 48.16 in 2001 already, and still hasn't improved on that. After the 2002 Euro indoors I really believed he would be the Next Big Thing, but now I'm much less confident about that.
