Cuba's Robles fourth in Puerto Rico track meet

Cuba's Dayron Robles, the reigning Olympic champion and world record-holder in the 110-meter hurdles, finished fourth in a track meet at Puerto Rico.

American Ryan Wilson won the race in 13.424 seconds to lead a US podium sweep in the event with Jason Richardson second in 13.425, David Payne third in 13.45 and Robles fourth in 13.47, just ahead of Cuba's Orlando Ortega in 13.53.

Robles, who was using the event as a tuneup for the London Olympics, set the current world record of 12.87 seconds in 2008 in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

He is expected to compete in Diamond League events at Eugene, Oregon, and New York next month as well.
