The Class Of 2016 | Grant Holloway (Episode 3)

Jun 21, 2021

Next up in our series is Virginia native Grant Holloway, a 2019 Bowerman winner, a 60mH world record holder and a graduate of Grassfield High School.

Before leaving high school, he was among Virginia's top all-time hurdlers. And yet, it wasn't until his arrival at the University of Florida when he truly began to explode as a world superstar.

Holloway set an NCAA and American indoor record in the 60mH and an NCAA record in the 100mH. He would go on to win a World Championship title in the 100mH in 2019 before later breaking the world indoor record in the 60mH in 2021. For more on our series, visit the links below.
