Dayron Robles Gives Cuba Second Gold Medal at Beijing 2008

Robles came in followed by US athletes David Payne and David Oliver, who got silver and bronze respectively.

Robles was very close to breaking the Olympic record set at 12,91 by Chinese Liu Xiang at Athens 2004. He became the second Cuban athlete to get the Olympic title in his sports modality after Anier Garcia, who made it at Sydney 2000.
