Jamaica’s reigning IAAF World Indoor 60m and 110mh Olympic champion, Omar McLeod, will kick off his 2017 season 110th NYRR Millrose Games to be held at the Armory’s New Balance Track & Field Centre.

McLeod, a fierce competitor, must be keeping a watchful eye on the performances of his rivals. Great Britain’s Andrew Pozzi is the world leader after dipping below 7.50 twice and recording a personal best 7.44. The Rio Olympic silver medallist, Orlando Ortega, of Spain with 7.51, follows him on the world list.

McLeod, whose personal best is 7.41, will be hoping on Saturday to send out a reminder that he currently wears the crown and will still be around. McLeod will have his Rio teammate Andrew Riley as well as the speedy American, Aleec Harris, to push him towards a fast time.
