Man crush Monday - David Oliver

Yahoo SportsDecember 17, 2013

#MCM is the new social media trend that stands for man crush Monday. Every Monday people post about their favorite man crush, so we have decided to jump on the bandwagon. This week we would like to salute our Yahoo Sports man crush from the world of track and field, David Oliver.

David Oliver is in the middle of a deep American hurdle group that includes Aries Merritt, Jason Richardson and Jeff Porter heading into 2013. Oliver placed fifth at the 2012 Olympic Trials and was the fourth fastest outdoor in the world. This was after battling through injuries in 2011. But 2010 proved to be a spectacular season for Oliver. He twice established the American record in the 110m hurdles en route to going undefeated outdoors. He first tied Dominique Arnold's record of 12.90 before taking sole possession of the mark at 12.89. By the time the 2010 season came to a close, Oliver was unbeaten in 15 finals races and held the top five times and eight of the top nine times in the world.
