The US sprint hurdler’s performance took 0.01 off the previous mark, set by Colin Jackson back in 1994.
Holloway had hinted at something special in the heats when he sped to a 7.32 clocking, smashing the meeting record and equalling his own world-leading mark and North American record.
This evening in Madrid, Holloway produced his ninth and 10th wins of 2021, and he now extends his winning streak in indoor sprint hurdles races to 54 races. His last loss in an indoor sprint hurdles race came in 2014 when he was aged 16.
