Americans Kendra Harrison, Grant Holloway and Christian Coleman were among the athletes posting world-leading marks over the weekend.
Coleman wrapped up his USATF Indoor Championships campaign with a sizzling 6.37 seconds performance to win the men’s 60m title, a time which is the second-fastest ever in the event behind his very own world record mark of 6.34 secs, set on the same track in Albuquerque in 2018.
At the Clemson Tiger Paw Invitational, sprint hurdlers Holloway and Harrison both produced world-leading times.
Holloway, the 110m hurdles World Champion last year, opened his 2020 campaign with a stunning 7.38 seconds in the men’s 60m hurdles in Clemson, and came just 0.03 shy of the lifetime best.
The time was also a facility record for the Clemson Indoor Complex.
Prior to running his world-leading mark, the 22-year-old clocked 7.52 to equal the previous 2020 world best on his way to winning his heat and then produced 7.48 second for victory in the semi-final round.
Meanwhile, the women’s 60m hurdles went to world indoor champion Harrison, who crushed the field en route to running 7.80 seconds.
Jamaican 2015 world outdoor champion Danielle Williams competed in the two opening rounds and posted times of 8.02 and 7.99, respectively.
