Wild card and $10,000

| 0 Comments

The 2021 World Indoor Tour has just ended, and World Athletics is announcing the wild card status on the 11 winners and cash prizes.

An excellent ending to the 2021 World Indoor Tour, with an exciting world indoor record and two world leads. This is the event by event meet update provided by EME News.

The complete results on Villa de Madrid Gallur are below. The meet had a world indoor record at the 60m hurdles by Grant Holloway with his 7.29. Some quick distance events added to the final meet in the 2021 World Indoor Tour.

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!

The ATL Meet 4 was a suitable end to the 2021 elite season in the US.

This is the Saturday workout. It combines hills and speed play. Stay aware. Stay focused.

The men's 1,500m came down to two men, who both wanted to win. In this case, Olli Hoare, the Australia, went by Jake Wightman, to take the win in an Australian indoor record, 3:32.35. In the mixed zone, I was able to ask Olli a couple questions.
