US sprint king Grant Holloway set a world record in the 60m hurdles at the US Indoor Championships

Grant Holloway, the hurdles king, broke a new world record in the 60-meter competition at the US Indoor Championships in New Mexico on Friday.

Holloway, a three-time 110m hurdles world champion and Olympic silver winner, clocked 7.27 seconds in Albuquerque, breaking his previous world record of 7.29.

The athleat, who was already guaranteed a spot on the US squad for next month’s global championships as the reigning indoor world champion, chose not to compete in Friday’s final following his record-breaking race.

In the women’s 60-meter hurdles, Tia Jones tied the world record with a timing of 7.67 seconds during her heat, matching Holloway’s record performance.

Jones almost matched that time in the final, finishing in 7.68 seconds, ahead of Jasmine Jones (7.78 seconds) and Masai Russell (7.80 seconds).

On Friday, Tara Davis-Woodhall won the long jump with a stunning world-leading performance. Davis-Woodhall comfortably won by soaring 7.18m on her sixth jump, with Jasmine Moore coming in second at 6.93m.
