Kendra Harrison ties 60 Hurdles American Record

Several world-leading marks were set at the Clemson Tiger Paw Invitational in Clemson, but the headline performance came from Kendra Harrison.

After clocking a season’s best of 7.81 in her heat, the 100m hurdles world record-holder sped to a 7.72 victory in the final. Her time tied the North American indoor record, set in 2010 by two-time world indoor champion Lolo Jones.

Harrison’s training partner Omar McLeod, the world and Olympic 110m hurdles champion, suffered his first 60m hurdles defeat since 2014. He won his heat in 7.46 but was beaten in the final by 20-year-old Grant Holloway of the University of Florida, who won in 7.42, taking 0.07 off the PB he set three weeks ago on the same track.

World U20 200m champion Michael Norman produced the fastest debut indoor 400m in history to win over two laps of the track in Clemson. The 20-year-old sped through the first 200m in 20.91 before going on to cross the finish line in 45.00, taking him to seventh on the world indoor all-time list. Nathan Strother finished second in 45.56. IAAF
