After running 7.32 in the prelims, Holloway got out quick, ran a superb race and crossed the line in an unofficial 7.32. Then things got really bizarre. It must have been announced in stadium in Spanish that Holloway had broken the old world record (7.30), but the time was never adjusted on the screen or on the TV broadcast. Holloway was handed a world record placard, but refused to celebrate until he saw the time on the scoreboard. It took nearly 4 minutes, but eventually Holloway was able to celebrate.

The Villa de Madrid Meet was the final stop on the 2021 World Athletics World Indoor Tour.
