McLeod Survives False-Start Call

After surviving a false-start call, the Jamaican navigated strongly over the barriers to clocked 7.53 seconds to take the victory. The time is the third-fastest in the world this year behind American Grant Holloway’s 7.35, done at the first staging of the American Track League series two weeks ago.

McLeod, who won gold at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, also won the World Indoor 60m hurdles title that same year before winning the gold medal at the 2017 World Championships in London.

The 26-year-old owns a personal best of 7.41 seconds for the 60m hurdles.

It was McLeod’s second meeting of the season, after running the open 60m at the first meeting of the series.

On Sunday in Fayetteville, the USA’s Michael Dickson finished in second place with 7.58, while third place went to Ruebin Walter of Trinidad and Tobago in 7.68, the same time credited to fourth-place finisher Trevor Bassitt of the USA.
