Nice photo, but hurdles need to be turned around

It was nice to see the above-the-fold, front-page photo in The Maui News (April 21) showing Josiah Hueu vaulting over a hurdle at the Haiku Ho’olaulea & Flower Festival.

However, can you see what was wrong with the picture?

Note the hurdles. They should have been turned around 180 degrees with the legs facing the hurdlers. As it was, if any hurdler had hit the hurdle just right, he would have tripped and fallen down instead of the hurdle falling over.

Someone should have noticed this and turned them around. Just a reminder for next year.
