The former LSU and NCAA standout will kick off his season at Hilmer Lodge Stadium on Saturday (20) in the 100m, lining up in the third of the two heats against several other top professional sprinters. Laird, the 2021 NCAA 100m champion, is expected to face challenges from fellow American Kyree King and Japan’s Yuki Koike.

However, the heat will also feature Saminu Abdul-Rasheed of South Florida, who is coming off a 10.13 seconds performance at the 2024 Tom Jones Memorial Invitational and has also posted a wind-aided 9.95 (3.6m/s) earlier this month. Keep an eye on Cooper Bibbs of S.H.A.R.K.S Elite, and Travis Williams of USC, who are also expected to be in contention.

Four-time Olympic medalist and former UCLA sprinter Ato Boldon of Trinidad and Tobago owns the meet and stadium record at 9.86 seconds, set in 1998.

Meanwhile, Laird will aim to complete the double later in the day when he lines up for the 200m. The 25-year-old, who owns a personal best of 19.81 seconds in the event, will race from heat two in lane five.

College star Abdul-Rasheed, like Laird, will also return to battle for the sprint double, along with Bibbs and King. The event will also include David Dunlap, Kaleb Simpson of Arizona State, and Max Thomas of USC.

The meet and stadium record of 19.80 seconds was set by American sprinter Fred Kerley in 2022.

The men’s 100m is scheduled for 2:10 p.m., and the 200m is slated for 4:15 p.m.
