Watch: Charlton sets world indoor women’s 60m hurdles record

Devynne Charlton of the Bahamas, the 2022 world indoor champion, set a women’s world indoor 60m hurdles record of 7.67 seconds on Sunday at the 116th Millrose Games.

Charlton broke the old mark of 7.68 set by Sweden’s Susanna Kallur in 2008 at Karlsruhe, Germany, to win the race by 0.12 of a second over Jamaica’s Danielle Williams with American Tia Jones third in the same time.

“I knew I had it in me but it took a lot to put that race together,” said Charlton.

“I felt good in my prep heading up to today. I got the start that I needed. I just held it. I can’t say it was more than that.”

Against a world-class field, Charlton made herself the woman to beat in next month’s World Indoor Track and Field Championships at Glasgow.

“I knew it was there,” Charlton said of her record run. “But it’s all about executing the race and crossing the line first. So many of these ladies have the capability to do it.”
