Puerto Rico Athletics Classic Full Results – American Track League
May 12, 2022
The Puerto Rico Athletics Classic had stellar fields including six Tokyo Olympic champions: Elaine Thompson-Herah, Steven Gardiner, Hansle Parchment, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, Athing Mu, and Ryan Crouser.
The good news was the stars delivered as five of the six Olympic champs picked up victories. The one exception? Puerto Rico’s own Jasmine Camacho-Quinn who was upset thanks to a huge pr from Alaysha Johnson.
Clayton Murphy came from behind to win the men’s 800 easily and had time to punch his hand in the air to celebrate at the finish which is exactly what Trayvon Bromell did in winning the 100m in 9.92.
Christian Taylor only managed 15.91 in his first triple jump competition since rupturing his achilles last May, but told World Athletics, “I love what I do, and I am back for the love of the sport. I am healthy and ready to do a full campaign. As defending (world) champion, I can better prepare for Eugene.” (World Athletics recap of meet here).
The one thing the American Track League does not have is a decent results site for anyone on a computer. The only way to view results is event by event on an app.
So we have compiled the results for you our beloved LetsRun.com reader below. Results are by event distance with the prelims of the sprints at the very end.
