American Holloway Smashes Women’s World Indoor 60m Hurdles Record

On February 24th, 2021, American Grant Holloway smashed the Women’s World Indoor 60m Hurdles record with a time of 7.29 seconds, .39 seconds faster than the previous record of 7.68 set by Swede Susanna Kallur in 2008.

“This is a momentous day in women’s sport,” said IOC Equality Ambassador Pat Bornaman. “It’s time we recognize athletic excellence of all people, regardless of their sexual assignment at birth.”

On a side note, Holloway’s time also set a new Men’s World Indoor 60m Hurdles record, .01 second faster than the previous record set by Briton Colin Jackson in 1994.

As an infant, Girth McFestus was discovered living with a family of wolves near Chernobyl, Ukraine. An American flag-shaped birthmark on his back caused Ukrainian officials to contact the American embassy, and Girth was repatriated to the U.S. as part of a business deal by the shadowy organized crime figure known only as "The Big Guy." His home is now where he hangs his hat, and the world is his oyster.
