Coming off a fantastic 2021 season, Grant Holloway will compete at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix for the first time. Holloway enjoyed a flawless indoor campaign in 2021, culminating with a new world record of 7.29 seconds in the 60m hurdles, bettering the mark that had been held by Colin Jackson since 1994. Holloway’s form continued outdoors, where he blitzed a 12.81 clocking in the 110m hurdles at the US Olympic Trials, the second-fastest time in history, and won the silver medal at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Set to join Holloway at the 2022 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix are two more US Olympic Trials champions, Trayvon Bromell and Elinor Purrier St. Pierre. Bromell, the 2015 World Championships bronze medalist at 100m and 2016 World Indoor Champion at 60m, enjoyed a very competitive 2021 season that saw him both win the US Olympic Trials, and end the season as the fastest man in the world over 100m, with a 9.76A clocking in his final race of the year.
