Grant Holloway, Tia Jones run hurdles world records at USATF Indoor Champs

Grant Holloway broke his own world record, while Tia Jones tied the women’s world record in the 60m hurdles at the USA Track and Field Indoor Championships on Friday.

Holloway, undefeated at 60m hurdles for nearly 10 years, clocked 7.27 seconds in the preliminary heats in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

He took two hundredths off the world record he ran in 2021 and 2022.

In the women’s 60m hurdles heats, Jones tied the world record of 7.67 seconds that was set by Devynne Charlton of the Bahamas at last Sunday’s Millrose Games.

Tia Jones tied the world record in the women's 60m hurdles at the 2024 U.S. Indoor Championships then later won the final to qualify for the world indoor championships.

Holloway scratched the final (won by Trey Cunningham in 7.39), but he already had a bye into worlds as last year’s world indoor tour champion.

Holloway, 26, is the three-time reigning world champion and Olympic silver medalist in the 110m hurdles.

Jones, 23, was fifth in the 100m hurdles at the last two USATF Outdoor Championships.

They’ll look to make the Olympic team at June’s trials, where the top three in the 100m hurdles and 110m hurdles are in line to qualify.

Also Friday, world outdoor silver medalist Tara Davis-Woodhall long jumped 7.18 meters, supplanting Jackie Joyner-Kersee for second on the U.S. all-time indoor list behind Brittney Reese, whose American record is 7.23 from 2012.

Olympic silver medalist Chris Nilsen won the men’s pole vault and took two unsuccessful attempts at an American record-breaking height of 6.10 meters.

He is joined on the world team by Sam Kendricks, who will compete at his first global championship since repeating as world outdoor champ in 2019. American record holder K.C. Lightfoot bowed out at an early height.

Two-time Olympian Vashti Cunningham earned her eighth consecutive U.S. indoor high jump title and 14th total national title when including outdoor crowns dating to 2016.
