Spanish Olympic Games 110m hurdles silver medallist Orlando Ortega is aiming to break the sub-13 barrier this summer.

According to MARCA, Ortega said, “I always want to improve my times and my dream is to beat the 12.94 that I have had since 2015 – still as a Cuban.”

“In general terms, I would say that the great objective is to lower 13 seconds for the second time,” he added.
