Omar McLeod created history on Tuesday night when he became the first Jamaican male to win a gold medal in the 110m hurdles at the Olympic Games, blazing to glory in 13.05 seconds. The most consistent male hurdler in the last two seasons, McLeod came into the event the heavy favourite and safely navigated his way to the final with efficient but careful performances in the heats and semifinals.
