Holloway, Gabby, DeAnna Price WL Close To World Record As Allyson Missed Out

Saturday good weather snowballed to eyes pumping performance at the US trials.

It was Grant Holloway who first threatened the world record with a scotching 12.81s in the semifinal; almost nail Arrit Merritt 12.80s world record. He later ran 12.96s to win in the final.

Then in the 200m final, Gabby Thomas did unthinkable as she was classical dominant; even close to Florence Joyner world record of 21.34s. She now become the second fastest woman ever in 200m; even eclipsed Maria Jones with a winning time of 21.61s. Allyson Felix finished fifth in 22.11s.

Then in the hammer female, DeAnna Price went into extreme gear to produce a national record and second longest throw ever, threatened the Anita Wlodaczyk 80.85m with 80.31m.

Rai Benjamin was also very impressive over 400m hurdle with a second fastest ever time of 46.83s.
