This Day in History- February 10th

This day in history...

2008- Susanna Kallur of Sweden set the indoor World Record in the 60m Hurdles.  Her time was 7.68 at the BW-Bank Meeting in Karlsruhe, Germany.  Susanna has had a series of injuries and bad luck that prohibit her from making a real impact on the world hurdling scene.  She is also much better at the 60m distance as compared to the outdoor 100m distance.

2006- Wallace Spearmon of the United States set the Indoor World Record in the 300m at the Tyson Invitational with a time of 31.88 seconds.  2006 was Spearmon's first year as a professional after two years at the University of Arkansas.  It was fitting that he set the world record at his former school's track.
