Two-time Olympic hurdles champion Roger Kingdom injured his leg in an international meet Thursday, possibly jeopardizing his hopes for a third medal this summer in Barcelona.

A two-time gold medalist and world record-holder in the high hurdles, Roger Kingdom says his goal is to win again in the 110-meter event at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain.
