Run Fast and Turn Left

It wouldn’t be me if I did not start to mention the sport I love the most, TRACK & FIELD. To some it’s uninteresting and I do admit, the longer races are a little boring to watch, but trust me, it is worth it.

Last week the Millrose Games happened and for all who don’t know what those are, it’s the longest running and most prestigious indoor track meet located at the New York City Armory. High school track and field athletes compete in these games as well as collegiate athletes, clubs and professionals. It’s so big NBC covers and airs it, not the whole thing because a track meet is basically an all day event, but most of it.

Here are the highlights from some of the top races of the night:

Allyson Felix took the 60- meter dash in 7.15 seconds

Ajee Wilson took the 800 meter run for the third time. She finished with a time of 2:00.09 while second place had a time of 2:00.14.

Natasha Hastings took the 400 meter dash with a time of 51.66

Andre DeGrasse from Canada won the 60 meters in 6.61

Erik Kynard won the high jump with 7 feet, 6.50 inches

Gwendolyn Berry threw 79- 8.25 in the weight throw breaking the meet record
