Grant Holloway is one of my favorite interviews. Always quotable, always thoughtful commentary, and always confident. 

Socialising the Distance has been on hiatus since June 2022. We are now in season three, and this episode

recorded in March 2022 after Grant’s World Indoor title in 2022.

Grant Holloway has won World Indoor 2022 and World Outdoors in 2019 and 2022.

Grant owns the world indoor record for the 60-meter hurdles and has #2 time in 110m hurdles (12.81).

What is interesting about this interview is how we get a view into Grant’s daily training and activities outside

of the hurdles.

Grant also lets it be known that he would love 4x100m and 4x400m relays. Most of all, Grant Holloway wants to be the

the finest hurdler in history.

It is important to Grant Holloway that he leave a legacy after his career is over.

I am looking forward to seeing Grant Holloway in Budapest 2023 and Paris 2024!
