— World Athletics (@WorldAthletics) February 24, 2021 In his last race two weeks ago in Lievin, France, Holloway was just .02 off former leader Colin Jackson’s world record set in March of 1994. The track star now holds four of the six fastest 60-meter hurdle performances in history — all at 7.35 or faster, according to World Athletics. The Virginia native went to the University of Florida on a track scholarship and went pro in the sport during his junior year in 2019. He held the top time in the NCAA for the 60m and 110m hurdles all three seasons — including one that was held for 40 years.
