In the men’s 60-meter hurdle preliminaries, Holloway produced a 7.27-second heat. He bettered his own world-record mark of 7.29, established on Feb. 24, 2021, in Madrid.

Holloway did not run in the event’s final, which Trey Cunningham won in 7.39 seconds. Cameron Murray took second at 7.45, and Daniel Roberts came in third at 7.48.

Jones ran a 7.67 in the women’s 60-meter hurdle preliminaries, matching the mark established just five days earlier by the Bahamas’ Devynne Charlton at the Millrose Games in New York.
