Reminiscing: Kevin Young Blows Up 400 Hurdle Record

Let's looks back as Kevin "Spiderman" Young mastered nine steps between the hurdles in route to celebrity status in the sport. At the 1992 Barcelona Games, he dropped 46.78, establishing a new world record at 400-meter hurdles, while throwing his hands in the air. The previous record 47.02 was held by hurdle legend Edwin Moses

“I’m an Olympic superhero,” Mr. Young says. “I didn’t just break Edwin Moses’ record for the 400-meter hurdles — I shattered it.”

Which athlete can make a serious run at this record?
