World champion Grant Holloway headlines a strong men’s 60m hurdles field for the 2021 Copernicus Cup in Torun, Poland on 17 February, meeting organizers announced. The Copernicus Cup is the seventh edition of the World Athletics Indoor Tour meeting this year.

Holloway Set To Race Outside The U.S.

Holloway, who is third on the world indoor all-time list for the 60m hurdles with his North American record of 7.35 seconds, is set to compete in his first-ever indoor race outside of the USA.

The 23-year-old American, who opened his season with a fast time that equaled his U.S. record at the American Track League meeting #1 last Sunday, is down to take on the likes of world indoor champion Andrew Pozzi of Great Britain and Olympic silver medallist Orlando Ortega of Spain.

Pozzi was enjoying a fruitful 2020 campaign before the season was halted because of the COVID-19 pandemic and he will be hoping to pick up from where he left off. He owns an indoor personal best of 7.43 seconds and ran 7.48 secs during the indoor campaign last season.

Meanwhile, local eyes will focus on Damian Czykier, who improved to 7.54 over the indoor distance in 2020. He was the fourth-place finisher in the 110m hurdles at the 2018 European Championships.
