Love this quote from @jonridgeon:
“@colinjackson should be worried about his record being broken by @Flaamingoo_ right now! Colin’s record has remained intact for approaching 30 years! Colin’s record demonstrates just how fast he ran back in the 1990’s!” @WorldAthletics pic.twitter.com/1GuDN5vzFN

The opening meet in 2021 for Grant Holloway was Jan. 24, 2021. He opened with 7.38 in the heats and 7.35 in the final. Grant was so far ahead that he could have had a sack lunch and still won.
In Lieven, Grant Holloway was on, and he was near perfection. His hurdling was sublime. His sprinting was fast and furious. In coming oh so close to the time that Colin Jackson achieved three decades ago, Grant Holloway is just hinting at the ability that he has in the 60m hurdles and 110m hurdles. Hint some more, oh @Flaamingoo!
Holloway before last meet of the indoor season

MADRID (ESP): After running 7.32 earlier this season, Grant Holloway has said breaking the world indoor 60m hurdles of 7.30 “is definitely possible” in Madrid. “Two milliseconds (hundredths) to get to 7.30; it’s definitely possible. I’m in great shape…it’s my last race of the indoor season so If the record falls, it falls. If it doesn’t fall, then I want to make sure my race is at a high level. I’ve never raced in Madrid before and never raced on this track but I know it has a reputation of being fast. Multiple world records have been set in Madrid but the main thing for me is not to think (specifically) about the record but focus on getting the win,” he said. Madrid is also in a slightly higher altitude favorable for sprints. From World Athletics.
