Richardson will get test at Prefontaine Classic

Sat., June 2, 2012

Jason Richardson is a thrill-seeker, vowing to one day swim with sharks, cliff dive and bungee jump. The world-champion 110-meter hurdler is a romantic as well, hoping to “slip and fall in love and not get back up,” learn to speak fluent Italian and read at least 50 of the classics. Also on the 26-year-old’s lengthy bucket list: Write his own novel, become a millionaire by 35 and stand on an Olympic podium, maybe even this summer. He won’t have to wait for the London Games to see how realistic this last item just may be. Richardson (pictured right) will compete today in the Prefontaine Classic at Eugene, Ore., where a star-studded field awaits, including 2004 Olympic gold medalist Liu Xiang of China and American record holder David Oliver. – Associated Press
