Manage episode 337045238 series 2912908
"I just came into this year, worked my tail off and worked hard. The two goals that I've had, even when we were at New Balance Indoors, I said I wanted to win the World indoor title and I wanted to come back and defend my World outdoor title. That's exactly what I did. To mark those two things off my bucket list and my things to do this season is great."
Chris Chavez, Kyle Merber and John Anderson sat down with Grant Holloway on the day after he successfully defended his 110m hurdles world championship gold medal in Eugene, Oregon. The victory came after Olympic champion Hansle Parchment of Jamaica injured himself in the warmup before the final and U.S. star Devon Allen was disqualified for a false start by one-thousandth of a second (His reaction time was .099/The legal limit is .100).
