A good group was active last weekend at events in the United States.
Athletes Myles Lewis, Hector Pagan, Alondra Negron and Aiden Owens Delerme had strong performances this weekend, while Jasmine Camacho Quinn decided not to make her debut in the 2023 world athletics season as a precaution.
Camacho Quinn decided to skip the tests he had on Friday and Saturday on indoor tracks. Her coach John Coghlan said the athlete is recovering from a muscle strain suffered three weeks ago and there is no reason to rush her 2023 debut.
But a Puerto Rican-born sprinter named Miles Lewis showed up again with a good position and finishing time against elite sprinters in the indoor 60m.
Lewis, 31, has competed in Puerto Rico several times.
He finished fourth with a time of 6.69 seconds. Olympic and world 200m champion Noah Lyles won the event with a time of 6.56. The test was held as part of the World Athletics New Balance Grand Prix in Boston.
Aside from the young sprinters and the Intercollegiate Athletic League, Puerto Rico did not have a single sprinter in time for the speed elite.
Puerto Rico Athletics Federation head coach Carlos Guzmán recommended keeping an eye on this runner if he transitions well from indoor to outdoor tracks.
“He came fourth against the elite, showing a good time. Also, Olympic 100m champion Lamont Marcel Jacobs ran 6.57 in Europe on Saturday. and Miles ran a 6.69. Miles is friends with the elite,” Guzman said.

Meanwhile, Barranqitas track and field athletes Pagan and Negron won the 5,000 meters at the Boston University Invitational with times of 14:07.66 and 16:06.51, respectively. It was an indoor track competition.
And Owens Delerme, for his part, returned to competition at the NCAA level and helped the University of Arkansas win the 4x400m relay in the college indoor season. The duo clocked 3:01.09 at the New Mexico meet to set the second-fastest relay time in NCAA history.
