Jamaica’s McLeod makes track and field history

Jamaican hurdler Omar McLeod over the weekend made IAAF track and field history.

Normally, you’d find McLeod running the 110-metre high hurdles, where he is the reigning world champion.

At the John McDonnell Invitational in Lafeyette, Ark., however, he ran the 100-metres and won in 9.99 seconds.

That makes him the first man in history to run sub-10 seconds in the 100-metres and sub-13 seconds in the 110-metre hurdles.
