Our topics:

1. USATF indoors was not televised on Friday; there was a paywall on USATF.TV. Most fans relied on social media. We wrote about Grant Holloway, who hurdled 7.27 for 60m hurdles, a new WR! Tia Jones equaled the 60m hurdle WR of 7.67, then scored 7.68 to win the final. Ellie St. Pierre won 3000m with a tricky last 400m in 8:54, by 9 seconds! Yared Nuguse battled Olin Hacker, with Yared taking the win in 7.55.
