Jamaica’s Hansle Parchment finished strongly to take gold ahead of American favourite Grant Holloway in the men’s 110m hurdles final.

World champion Holloway, who had not lost a hurdles race since August 2020, dropped momentum in the later stages of the race allowing Parchment to surge past him with a season-best time of 13.04.

Jamaica’s Ronald Levy claimed bronze in 13.10, one hundredth of a second behind Holloway. (BBC)
