Well done. Part of the attraction of this photo is the intrigue. The LHS runner obviously hasn't clipped a hurdle yet is slightly behind, whereas the RHS runner has clipped a hurdle and is in front. Who won?

Great composition. I love the frame filled with endless hurdles.

The image looks grainier than I would expect considering that the info says it's a K-5 at ISO 800. I'll guess that the lighting was bad and you had to lift exposure during processing. Try adjusting noise reduction.

Some of the blurred hurdles in the background look too bright. A bit of highlight correction might improve the image.

Really like the intensity you captured in their faces -- very nice.
