Cuban Dayron Robles, who is the holder of the world mark of 110 meters hurdles, will have his last stage of training towards the 29th Olympic Games of Beijing in Havana.

"I feel good. I continue working and to meet again with my family is a big incentive from the psychological point of view," Robles was quoted by local press on Wednesday.

Robles, returned to Cuba after a season of competitions in Europe, where he set a world mark on June of 12.87 seconds, now is training in the artificial trail in the Pan American Stadium.

"I work for the best and that could be translated into victory. I always try to reach the finals; after that anything can happen," Robles said.

A total of 40 Cuban athletes will take part in track and field competitions in the Beijing Olympic Games.
