Olympic gold medallist, Omar Mcleod sets sights on 110m hurdles world record

Olympic medalist Omar McLeod is currently on a mission to make a 110m hurdles world record after settling a Jamaican national record with a time of 12.90 seconds.

Omar who is 23year old is not happy with the way things are, especially seeing the American Aries Merritt's world record of 12.80 seconds,  McLeod said he hopes to break it before the London World Championships in August.


Speaking, McLeod said;

"I did not get it, so I am going after it next time," he said.

McLeod's time on Saturday beat the previous Jamaican record of 12.94 set by Hansle Parchment in 2014 in Paris.

"The coach wanted a 12.8 and I know he will be a little upset. But I can tell him I set a national record of 12.90 and am now the fifth fastest man in history." He said.
