Those records will be taken down soon..Grant is a amazing hurdler,He’s behind Colin Jackson’s record .02,that is going soon.
This guy is dangerous
It will be interesting to see how much he pulls the other hurdlers to fast times
400mH. Decathlon. Legit has the talent, with the necessary focus, to own a handful of WRs. Unmatched range of gifts.
Keep it up Holloway
The clash between him and Omar will be entertaining for that gold in Tokyo
Taieke Haughton I cannot agree more! I’m all for my Jamaican athletes but there are some opponents that I respect to the max and look forward to their rivalry with my fellow Jamaican athletes. Omar is refreshed and reenergized and ready to go so I’m looking forward to the clashes.
Gauntlet Ferguson I think had he not hit that hurdle he would have beaten him. He made up the difference and caught him, but hit the hurdle. The contest should be fascinating. Omar has sub 10 speed over the 100
Taieke Haughton along with his NCAA nemesis Daniel Roberts
**Taieke Haughton most definitely 👍 **
