Hurdles to Gold – Angelo Taylor

Angelo Taylor - USA 4X400 Relay

Day 3 of the IAAF World Championships begins the running activities for Angelo Taylor.  Taylor will be competing in the 400m Hurdles and 4X400 Relay team.  These World Championships come with lots of anxiety for the competitors; with the London 2012 Olympics less that a year away, top performers at this event will be heavy favorites at next summer’s Olympics. Taylor is expected to garner gold medals on the biggest stages of track & field.

Taylor is favored by most track analysts to win Gold Medals in the 400m Hurdles and 4X400 Relay in Daegu, Korea.  Despite finishing third in a photo finish at the USA Outdoor Championships in June, track observers point to the good season that Taylor has had in both the VISA and Samsung Diamond Leagues.  Post USA Outdoor Championships, Taylor ran well in the weeks to follow in Lausanne, Switzerland, Monte Carlo, Monaco, Stockholm, Sweden, and London, England.  Taylor’s experience and ability to get up for the big races gives him an edge over the competition.
