Holloway Ties Third-Fastest Time in Collegiate History

Florida track and field kicked its season into gear Friday night at the Clemson Invitational, with Grant Holloway’s school record and world-leading time highlighting five performances that cracked the program’s All-Time Indoor Top 10, as well as a handful of national top-10 performances.

Holloway tied the third-fastest 60-meter hurdles time in collegiate history, crossing in 7.49 seconds to break Gator Great Eddie Lovett’s school record (7.50) from the 2013 NCAA Indoor Championships. Here’s more context to Holloway’s blazing time:

Sixth sub-7.50-second performance in collegiate history (Omar McLeod, Arkansas, 7.45 at 2015 NCAA Indoor Championships; Reggie Torian, Wisconsin, 7.47 in February 1997; McLeod, 7.49 at 2015 SEC Indoor Championships; Jarret Eaton, Syracuse, 7.49 in January 2012; Torian, 7.49 at 1997 USATF Indoor Championships)
Fourth man in collegiate history to break 7.50 seconds
Tied Eaton as the No. 3-ranked 60 hurdler in collegiate history
Time would have been tied for sixth-fastest in the world for the 2017 season
Holloway is now the only man in the world since 1999 to boast indoor personal records below 7.50 seconds (60 hurdles) and at least 8.05 meters (long jump) FLORIDA GATORS
