Anay TEJEDA, Cuba (100m Hurdles)

Born: 3 April 1983, Havana 1.65m/59kg

Manager: Javier Sotomayor/Jesús Molina Coach: Santiago Antúnez


A promising athlete since her youth, Anay Tejeda has shown this winter that she is ready to take on the challenge of the world’s best sprint hurdlers and reach her first senior World Championships final in Valencia.

Born in 1983, she soon showed her speed and technique over the hurdles and quickly began to represent her country internationally.

At the inaugural World Youth Championships, in Bydgoszcz, Poland, in 1999, Tejeda placed third and kept improving to finish seventh at the 2000 World Junior Championships in Santiago, Chile. First under the guidance of Orlando Meneses and later Santiago Antúnez, she was soon exposed to top competitions, indoors and out, as she had the potential to break the world junior record.

In her indoor debut, Tejeda set the Area Junior record over 60m hurdles (8.12), before she broke the 13sec barrier outdoors at home and went on to win the 2002 Central American and Caribbean junior gold in Bridgetown, Barbados, weeks before she became the second Cuban to win the World Junior title at 100m hurdles, in Kingston, Jamaica. Aided by a 3.1mps tailwind, Tejeda ran 12.81 but she ended her season with a legal 12.89.

In 2003, Tejeda did not improve as expected and could only finish eighth at the Pan American Games in Santo Domingo. A better 2004 saw her run 12.74 after her Olympic debut in Athens, where she could not advance beyond the first round.

In 2006 Tejeda claimed her first senior title at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Colombia, where she also anchored her team to the 4x100m gold in a Games record. She clocked 12.72 and continued to move closer to Aliuska Lopez’s national record of 12.67, set in 2000.

In 2007, Tejeda was only fifth in her second Pan American Games but left Rio de Janeiro with her first continental medal (bronze) as part of the 4x100m relay squad. In Osaka, she ran her second World Championships semi-final, her first coming in Helsinki 2005, but again she failed to reach the final.

Indoors, she has been very consistent in her sixth winter season. With six races under eight seconds in 2008, Tejeda finally erased Lopez’s 13-year-old indoor record with her 7.90 clocking in Karlsruhe.

A convincing win in Paris, on February 22, placed her in a good position to aim for one of the eight spots in the Valencia final. In her third consecutive World Indoor Championships, it is time for her to take advantage of her momentum and fight for a medal.
