Holloway blasts to hurdles world record at US Indoors

LOS ANGELES: Hurdles king Grant Holloway set a new world record in the 60-meter competition at the US Indoor Championships in New Mexico on Friday.

Holloway, the three-time 110m hurdles world champion and Olympic silver medalist, scorched home in 7.27sec in Albuquerque, eclipsing his own previous world best of 7.29sec.

The 26-year-old from Virginia, who as the reigning indoor world champion was already assured of a place on the US team for next month’s world championships, opted to skip Friday’s final after his record-breaking run.
