American Grant Holloway broke Colin Jackson’s long-standing 60m indoor hurdles world record at Wednesday’s track meeting in Madrid. The 110m hurdles world champion ran 7.29 seconds to shave a hundredth of a second off the record set by Briton Jackson in 1994. Holloway had already run 7.32 seconds in the heats and blitzed the competition in the usual style on how to claim the new record, with Briton Andrew Pozzi finished second in 7.51 seconds.
