Grant Holloway of Team USA finished second in the men’s 110-meter hurdles in a race that saw Jamaica’s Hansle Parchment stun the world champion.
Hansle won the race with a time of 13.04, and Holloway finished in 13:09. Ronald Levy of Jamaica took home the bronze and American Devon Allen came 4th.
Holloway, the overwhelming favorite, led the race for 9 out of the 10 hurdles, but faded as Hansle finished strong and added an Olympic gold to his collection. Hansle also won a bronze medal in the 2012 London games.
