Monday night, the spotlight will turn to the finals of the men's 110m hurdles, and it's shaping up to be a great one.

For the first time in a long time, the top three hurdlers in the world, Chinese Olympic hero Liu Xiang, world record holder Dayron Robles of Cuba, and American powerhouse David Oliver are all healthy and ready to go head-to head on Monday evening.

Liu Xiang said, "I felt pretty good, in the first round, and my goal is to reach the finals. Today is easy for me, and the result is even beyond my expectations. I think I ran very well today. As for my coach...he is very careful and is always worried about me. But I am a veteran on the track, and I know how to deal with all kinds of things. "

Jiang Fan, Chinese 110m hurdles athlete said, "I just broke though with my own personal best, and for me this is not a surprise. I trained very well over the days here and my conditioning is very good after I came back from the Universiade. Today I competed with Oliver in one group, but it didn't affect me at all, I just ran against myself."

Shi Dongpeng from Chinese 110m hurdles team said, "I will go back and think about how to run in the semi's tomorrow, and hope I can run even faster."
