STAMFORD, Conn. – Feb. 2, 2023 – Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone, Noah Lyles, Shericka Jackson, and Grant Holloway – all four of whom won individual gold medals at the World Track & Field Championships Oregon22 – headline NBC Sports’ live coverage of the 2023 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix from Boston, Mass., this Saturday, February 4, at 4 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock. The meet, which doubles as a stop on the World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold, will be held for the first time at the TRACK, a new, state-of-the-art indoor facility at New Balance’s world headquarters in Boston.
McLaughlin-Levrone, coming off a historic 2022 season that saw her win her first individual world championship and re-set her own 400m hurdles world record to 50.68, is expected to drop down in distance and race the 60m dash. The 2020 Tokyo Olympic champion, who owns six of the seven fastest times ever run in the 400m hurdles, was named World Athletics Athlete of the Year for 2022. Competing against her in the 60m is five-time Olympic medalist and reigning 200m world champion Shericka Jackson (Jamaica), who owns the second-fastest 200m time ever (21.45).
Reigning 200m world champion and American record holder Lyles is expected to compete in the men’s 60m dash after a dominant 2022 season that saw him break Michael Johnson’s 26-year-old 200m American record. In the 60m hurdles, 2022 110m hurdles world champion Grant Holloway and silver medalist Trey Cunningham are set to clash in a rematch of their world championship duel in Oregon last summer.
Other notable athletes expected to compete include reigning world and Olympic pole vault champion Katie Moon (née Nageotte), two-time Olympic medalist Gabby Thomas, 2022 100m silver medalist Marvin Bracy-Williams, and 2020 Tokyo Olympic 1500m silver medalist Laura Muir (Great Britain).
NBC Sports’ Paul Swangard will call the event, joined by four-time Olympic medalist Ato Boldon and two-time Olympian Kara Goucher. Lewis Johnson will serve as reporter.
