I come not to praise Robles, but to bury him. :shock:

Only if he masters English. His lack of English eliminates him from any English speaking country, although he might consider Puerto Rico, which is an American territory.

How come?

Why not? He was 13.00 two years ago. 13.10 last year. Faster than our new national record holder Parchment.

Probably because a majority of the media in the English speaking countries speak English. Plus, he would probably have to interact with his new teammates, many of whom speak only English.

There are multiple professional athletes in the US that speak little, if any, English. I would guess the same is true in Europe.

He may be back on the track but not back in form.
Finished 6th in 13.82s in Turin yesterday. Race won by Osaghae in 13.49 (-0.3).

This does not surprise me at all. I never believed he was going to retire anyway.

He may not be picked for Cuban teams. Yamile Aldama was prevented from competing for Cuba when she moved away from the island. Also, 400m runner Indira Terrero has not been picked for a team for a while, despite consistently being their best performer.

Really hoping that Robles can make a strong comeback. He's one of the greatest technicians the event has ever seen. He's magic over hurdles. Mind boggling.

Would be awesome to see him healthy and in the finals at Worlds.

The mere fact that he is running again I am a happy camper. It will take him a while to get his rhythm back but I rest in the hope that he will... eventually. This season might very well be a bust for him though.
