PONCE, Puerto Rico.- The men's hurdle race is also expected to be a star-studded event with the pair of Jamaican gold medalists battling in a very strong field.

Tokyo Gold Medalist, Hansle Parchment looks to maintain his title over his compatriot, Omar McLeod, the 2016 Olympic Champ.

The top American challenge will come from the most recent sub-13 runner, Devon Allen. Allen, who was just off the podium in Tokyo, ran 12.99 to cap the season in 2021 after having won the Diamond League title. Allen recently signed to play in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, but he delays his entry to training camp to focus first on the track season.

The competition, which is part of the World Athletics Continental Tour – Silver Level, is dedicated to the Olympian Javier Culson from Ponce.
