Holloway breaks record

Grant Holloway broke the world record for the indoor 60-meter hurdles that had stood for 27 years, clocking 7.29 seconds at an event in Madrid on Wednesday. The American took 0.01 seconds off the previous mark set by Britain’s Colin Jackson in 1994. Holloway, who is the world indoor champion over the sprint hurdles, extended his winning streak in the event to 54 races — dating back to 2014 when he was 16. His win at the Villa de Madrid event secured him overall victory in the World Athletics Indoor Tour. The 23-year-old said the outdoor 110 hurdles world record of compatriot Aries Merritt, set in 2012, was now in his sights.
