Kyle Vander-Kuyp

b. 1971

Kyle Vander-Kuyp (b. 1971) is Australia's greatest ever hurdler. In 1995 he set a new Australian record for the 110m hurdles - 13.29 seconds, a record that still stands. He represented Australia at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics (where he was a finalist) and in Sydney in 2000, where he made the semi-finals. In February 2004 he won his eleventh consecutive national title in the event - injury prevented him from defending the title again in 2005. At the 2006 national titles he was again the fastest Australian in the event, running a time that saw him selected to compete in his fourth Commonwealth Games.
