It only seems as if Greg Foster has been around forever, the master hurdler winning at the World Championships in 1983, 1987 and 1991 while picking up a silver medal in the Olympics and several broken bones along the way. And yet, he's probably at the top of his game at the Methuselahan age of 34."All things considered, last year was probably my best year and I didn't even go as fast as I can," said the man who has been ranked either first or second in the world for the last decade or so. It wasn't the times he ran or the victories he posted so much as the fact he was able to run hard in each race.
