Former UF track star Grant Holloway secured his title as a back-to-back world champion after winning gold in the 110-meter hurdles at the World Track and Field Championships Sunday in Eugene, Oregon.

Holloway brushed through the finish line ahead of his competition without missing a step in his pace, finishing the race in 13.03 seconds. 

His win marked a sweep in the hurdles at the World Championships in 2022, following his gold in the 60-meter hurdles at the World Indoor Championships in Belgrade, Serbia.  

The three-time NCAA champion in the 110-meter hurdles is now a two-time world champion at 24.

He has a chance to extend his gold tally to three next summer at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
