Jamaica’s Omar McLeod Runs WORLD-LEADING Time in 110m Hurdles – Video
Jamaican 110m hurdle specialist Omar McLeod last night ran a world-leading time of 13.01s in his winning run at the third Diamond League meeting of the season held in Italy. The 13.01 clocking on Thursday also equalled the meet record set back in 1999. This is McLeod’s best time since 2019.
Andrew Pozzi from Britain was second with a time of 13.25.
Currently, Omar is considered as the favourite to win gold in the upcoming Tokyo olympics. In an interview after the race he stated, “The time is close enough to 13 seconds and I will get under 13 seconds when the time is right. Now I had two solid races back to back and I am getting better with every race. It is good to get opportunities to race again”.
He also said, “It was a really good race. I put together a technically sound race. I did not hit a hurdle. The weather is a bit shaky but we have to put up with this”.
