This study however is confined to the Quarter-mile Intermediate Hurdles, as we know it today, an event for which, besides having a great deal of technical knowledge the participant must also be a highly trained individual. Even in Greek times, though, the individuals would train themselves hard in order to be better equipped to face the task which was in front of them. This, however, is the only similarity which exists between ancient Greek athletes and the modern day conception of the Quarter-mile Hurdles.
