• Felix Sanchez - Returns with Gold

Article source: Athletics
 London Olympic Stadium - Day four athletics - Dominican Republic's 34-year-old 400 meter  hurdle legend  Felix Sanchez won Olympic gold medal for the second time in his career. It was back in Athens  2004 when Sanchez stepped on the Olympic highest podium for the first time. 
 
Many probably started to forget who Felix Sanchez was. After a few years of struggling with injuries and other problems in his life, Sanchez was invisible in the sport of athletics and many sports fans thought Sanchez career was over. Tonight he showed superb performance and strength as he flew over the finish line in 47.63 seconds.
 
 His winning time 47.63 is not only the best time in the world this year but as well number eight all time in 400m hurdle history.
