Which Event For Holloway?

Someone in the media asked Grant Holloway the obvious question: “Which is your favorite event?”

Maybe a little too obvious.

“I feel like y’all ask me this every single time,” the Florida soph laughed. “I do not have a favorite event. It’s whatever Coach [Mike] Holloway tells me to do at that time, that’s my favorite event.”

The sequel to The Multi-Talented Mr. Holloway is only halfway done, but it’s looking very similar to—and just as exciting—as the 2017 original.

The first scene, in the Friday session, saw Holloway almost snatch gold in the long jump with a fifth-round 26-8¼ (8.13), only to have Texas A&M’s Will Williams snatch it back with a clutch sixth-round 26-10½ (8.19).

The second scene, the next day, had no such drama. Holloway blistered a 7.47 in the 60H, =No. 3 collegiate mark ever, albeit short of his own 7.42 CR from earlier this year. Nebraska’s Antoine Lloyd was a distant 0.13 back.

He capped it off by contributing a 44.91 second leg to a bronze-winning relay, wrapping up the team title for the Gators.

One has to wonder how long Holloway will stay in the collegiate ranks.

His hurdle time would have tied for silver at the World Indoor Championships, and a reporter asked him about competing on that stage.

“I feel like I could compete with anybody,” he said. “I think everybody knows that I’m a gamer. I’m unhappy that I wasn’t there, but I’m glad someone from the USA [silver medalist Jarret Eaton] got on the podium.”
