Preview of Meeting Lievin Men’s 60 Meters Hurdles

Grant Holloway, the world’s 110m hurdles champion, is expected to keep his unbeaten record alive on the fast track of the Stade Couvert in Liévin.

Holloway got his indoor season off to a strong start on Staten Island, where he won his first 60m hurdles race of the year in a world-leading time of 7.37 seconds.

In 2021, he won all nine of his 60m hurdles races, including the Liévin final with a time of 7.32. Holloway smashed the world indoor mark, which had been held by Colin Jackson since 1994, by clocking 7.29 in the World Indoor Tour gold meeting in Madrid a few days later.

Holloway ran the second-fastest time in the 110m hurdles outdoors at the US Olympic Trials in Eugene, clocking 12.81 in the semifinal and 12.96 in the final. In the Olympic final, he only lost once, finishing second to Hansle Parchment in 13.09.

Jarret Eaton, the world indoor silver medalist, ran 7.51 in Val de Reuil last Monday, 2018 European outdoor champion Pascal Martinot Lagarde, who won in Karlsruhe in 7.54, Wilhem Belocian, the European Indoor champion in Torun 2021 with 7.42, and 2019 US outdoor champion Daniel Roberts are among the field.

The other top names are reigning world indoor champion, Andy Pozzi, from Great Britain, and decathlon world record holder Kevin Mayer from France, who won the European Indoor gold medal in the heptathlon in Belgrade 2017 with the European record of 6479 points.
