Grant Holloway

American athlete, Grant Holloway won his third consecutive World Athletics Championships 110-metre hurdles gold medal.

The 25-year-old, who won in Doha in 2019 and Eugene last year, was in control by the third hurdle and cruised to victory in a season-best 12.96 seconds.

Holloway yelled “One-two-three!” to the jubilant audience at the National Athletics Centre after crossing the finish line, holding up three fingers.

“I’m speechless right now,” he said. “Nothing feels like the first one, but this one I’m definitely going to cherish in my heart.”

Hansle Parchment of Jamaica closed well to take the silver in 13.07, while Daniel Roberts of the United States crossed in 13.09 for bronze.

“To come back out here and do it with my brother (Roberts), we started running in college together, having battles, and now we’re able to have these battles on the world stage.

“Consistency is my biggest attribute. The biggest thing is I come out there and I know what I’m going to run before I’m on track.”

The final was missing the world’s fastest man this season, Rasheed Broadbell of Jamaica (12.94), who crashed out in the preliminary round.

Holloway, the second-fastest hurdler in history, finished second at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

He said he was using the sour taste of silver as motivation to go one better next year in Paris.
