April 9, 2022 | 0 Comments

The USATF Bermuda Games event was held today [April 9] at the Flora Duffy Stadium, featuring an array of top international athletes, including multiple Olympic medalists.

A number of local entities combined to help bring this world class event to Bermuda, the main local event sponsor was Athene, the Run Jump Throw community partner was Butterfield Bank, BGA was the event hydration partner, Digicel was the wireless provider, the BNAA was the event partner, and the BTA was the presenting partner.

Prior to the main event — which was televised internationally by NBC Sports — the Athene Fastest Kid on the Rock competition and the Run Jump Throw events were held, with the island’s young athletes in action.

The highlight of the USATF Meet for many attendees was the great showing by Bermuda’s Dage Minors who placed third in the 1500m metres, as well as having the chance to see all our Bermudian athletes, Tre Houston, Lamont Marshall, and Jah-Nhai Perinchief, compete in this world class event.

Canada’s Jerome Blake produced a win in a star-studded field in the men’s 100 final. Blake, 10.38, beat 18-year-old American Erriyon Knighton,10.39, and his compatriot Noah Lyle, a 200 specialist, 10.39. Jamaica star Yohan Blake, the world champion in 2011, finished fourth in 10.45.

In the women’s 100 final, there was a clean sweep for the US, with Teahna Daniels first, 11.45, Gabby Thomas second, 11.49, and Javianne Oliver third, 11.62.

Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, the Olympic champion, stormed to victory in the women’s 100 hurdles final in 12.67. Chanel Brissett of the US came second in 13.06, and her compatriot Christina Clemons placed third in 13.15.

In the men’s 110 hurdles final, Shane Brathwaite of Barbados came out on top, winning the race in 13.78. Michael Dickson of the US finished second in 13.85 while Eduardo Rodrigues of Brazil placed third in 13.87.

There was no surprise in the women’s 800 final, with American Ajeé Wilson, who won gold at the World Athletics Indoor Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, last month, winning in 2:03.09. Chrisann Gordon-Powell of Jamaica placed second, 2:04.19, and Charlene Lipsey of the US came third in 2:04.50.

Crowd favourite Kirani James of Grenada powered his way to victory in the men’s 400 final in 45.63, with Alex Haydock-Wilson of Britain second, 46.05, and Jaheel Hyde of Jamaica third, 46.27. James has won medals in that event in the last three Olympic Games, including gold in London in 2012.
