Robles: I wouldnt have been DQd if I were from a more powerful country

Cuban hurdler Dayron Robles, who was disqualified after winning the sprint hurdles title at the World Championships said he wouldnt have had his gold medal taken away if he came from a more powerful country.

Robles, the Olympic champion and world record holder, crossed the finishing line first in the mens 110m hurdles final, but had his gold medal take away after judges upheld an appeal from the Chinese contingent after replays showed that the Cuban held back Liu Xiang.

If I were from another country that had more power, that wouldnt have happened, Robles was quoted as telling The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Its very controversial that these things happen in an athletics world championships, lamentably it was my turn to lose out.

He added: You can always get hit, you open your arms and theres always contact. Ive had races where Ive collided with (American hurdler David) Oliver, with the same Chinese (Liu), thats normal and all the athletes know it.
