Grant Holloway and Trey Cunningham face off at 2023 New Balance Indoor GP for Hurdlemania!

This announcement came just before the holiday, and of course, I missed it. This past July, Grant Holloway and Trey Cunningham went gold and silver at the 2022 World Athletics Outdoor Championships. They are the two finest 110m hurdles competing at this time, and they will face off on February 4, 2023, for the 2023 New Balance Indoor GP.

How do you describe Grant Holloway? World Champion in 2019 and 2022, World Indoor Champ in 2022, World record holder in the 60 m hurdles, and number two times EVER over 110m hurdles. Grant loves to compete and is also one of the best interviews in the sport.

Trey Cunningham is the NCAA Champion, 2022 World Athletics Outdoor silver medalist, and totally up and coming in the hurdling world. I like his competitiveness and his obvious enjoyment of the sport.

These two will make the 60 hurdles rock! Do not miss the NB Indoor GP! It is always a tremendous meeting!

Boston, Mass. (Dec. 21, 2022) – Grant Holloway and Trey Cunningham, the 2022 World Athletics Championships gold and silver medalists in the 110m hurdles, will face off at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, organizers announced today.

Tickets for the event on Feb. 4, which forms part of the World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold, are now on sale at www.nbindoorgrandprix.com or by calling 1-877-849-8722.

In what promises to be an exciting match-up between two of last season’s fastest men in the world, Grant Holloway and Trey Cunningham will headline the men’s 60m hurdles in Boston. Holloway won his second-consecutive world outdoor title in the 110m hurdles to go with the gold he won in the 60m hurdles at the 2022 World Athletics Indoor Championships in Belgrade. Holloway is also the world indoor record-holder in the hurdles and is the second-fastest man in history outdoors.

Cunningham is coming off a fantastic year, in which he went undefeated in collegiate competition for the Florida State Seminoles, winning both the NCAA Indoor and NCAA Outdoor high hurdles titles – and was recognized with the prestigious Bowerman Award for his collegiate accomplishments last week. He went on to finish second at the US Championships and win the silver medal behind Holloway…
