    err, the 6th at the Paris DL wasn't a great indicator... in retrospect it's easy to call it a hiccup, but sure didn't look like it at the time

    some of us could feel it in our bones !!!!!

    He broke IAAF rule 168.7 (a) because his trial leg was around the side of his hurdle and below the height of the hurdle. The second part being clearly illustrated by him hitting the adjacent hurdle.

    What is the exact language and how does it differ from knocking your own hurdle over. I suspect that hooking is where you put your foot in space where there is no hurdle and is below the line of the hurdle.

    The rule says:

    "7. Each athlete shall go over each hurdle. Failure to do so will result in
    a disqualification.
    In addition, an athlete shall be disqualified, if:
    (a) his foot or leg is, at the instant of clearance, beside the hurdle
    (on either side), below the horizontal plane of the top of any
    hurdle;"

    Hitting the adjoining hurdle clearly indicated that his foot, at the instance of clearance, was beside the hurdle and below the horizontal plane of the top of the hurdle.

    Great Holloway interview on home page by Jeff Hollobaugh. I always knew Mouse Holloway (Fla coach) was brilliant; this proves it, and shows Grant's tenacity in hanging in there after the blah Euro stint.
