I've never understood the hurdles. What does jumping over obstacles that are exactly equidistant prove anyway? It would be much more exciting and entertaining if they staged this event at a house party. As the cops rushed in to break up the shindig, we could see what world-class hurdlers could really do on the uneven terrain and different fence heights of a suburban neighborhood. If you win, you get a gold medal; if you lose, you have to call your parents from the hoosegow. I bet Edwin Moses would fare much better than I did in this sport in high school. -KD
