• Grant Holloway Blasts 7.35 seconds in 60m hurdles; New American Record and #3 All-time

Article source: Athletics

Grant Holloway stormed to a victory in the 60m hurdles at the 2019 NCAA indoor championships and set a new collegiate record and the #3 all-time mark in the World.

The previous American record of 7.36 seconds belonged to legendary Alen Johnson from 2004.

Holloway also won the 60m flat in 6.50, finished third in Friday’s long jump final with 7.95m, and ran a 46.00 leg in the 4x400m.

Only Colin Jackson of Great Britain, the current World record with 7.30 seconds, and Cuba's Dayron Robles, who clocked 7.33 seconds in Dusseldorf in 2008, have run the 60m hurdles faster than Holloway.
