USA’s Grant Holloway upset, settles for silver in 110-meter hurdles

TOKYO — Jamaican Hansle Parchment finished strongly to win the men’s 110-meter hurdles gold at the Tokyo Olympics on Thursday.

World champion Grant Holloway of the United States was in the lead until the final hurdle but seemed to lose his momentum as Parchment surged past him to win in a season-best time of 13.04 and add the gold medal to his London Olympic bronze.

Jamaican Ronald Levy was third in 13.10 on a hot and humid morning at the Olympic Stadium.

Holloway, who had not lost a hurdles race since August last year, took the silver medal after finishing in 13.09.
