World champion Grant Holloway flirted with the 60m hurdles world indoor record on his way to shattering the American and North American mark to win the Meeting Hauts-de-France Pas-de-Calais title in Lievin on Tuesday (9). Holloway posted a sizzling time of 7.32 seconds to destroy his rivals in just his second outing of the 2020-21 campaign.

Running his first indoor race in Europe, the US sprint hurdler clocked a winning time that was just 0.02 shy of the world indoor record, set by Great Britain’s Colin Jackson on March 6, 1994.

Holloway had opened his season with a dazzling world-leading 7.35 seconds performance at the American Track League Meeting #1 in Fayetteville in Jan., which equaled his own North American indoor record, and he entered Tuesday’s meeting confident about lowering that mark.

The 23-year-old showed signs of his good form earlier in the day when he powered his way into the final with a comfortable 7.38 victory in the heats.

Following Holloway home in Lievin on Tuesday was France’s Wilhem Belocian, who finished second in 7.52, while Italian Paolo Dal Molin took third with 7.55. USA’s Aaron Mallett finished fourth in 7.57. Damian Czykier of Poland posted 7.59 for fifth place.
