Olympic champion to make 400m outdoor debut

Leading the list of elite athletes on the schedule for today is Olympic champion Steven Gardiner, who will lineup in the men’s 400 meters.

The Bahamian Tokyo Olympic champion from 2021 and world champion in Doha in 2019, has been outstanding so far during the early season, and he will compete in his first 400m race of the 2022 campaign with an eye on the world-leading mark of 44.28 seconds by USA’s Michael Cherry.

Gardiner will race in heat 1 of 3 against Americans Vernon Norwood and Tyler Terry, Matthew Hudson-Smith of Great Britain.

World leader and collegiate 200m record holder Favour Ofili of LSU will contest the women’s 100m against a strong field and she will be hoping to be pushed or pulled to another quick time this season.

The 19-year-old Nigerian ran a personal best of 11.00 seconds for a personal best in the event two weeks ago, and she will be aiming to better that mark this weekend. She leads the world with a 21.96 seconds PB and national record in the 200m and she looked out of class when sizzling to that time at the Florida 2022 Tom Jones Memorial last weekend.

At the 2022 LSU Alumni Gold meet, Ofili will battle against former LSU athletes Aleia Hobbs and Mikiah Brisco, as well as Dezerea Bryant, Tamari Davis, and current Tiger sprinter Symone Mason.

Meanwhile, Michael Cherry will contest the men’s 200m as he continues his preparations for the World Athletics Championships Oregon22, with Canada’s Brendon Rodney, Hudson-Smith, and LSU’s Da’Marcus Fleming also featuring in the race.

Two-time national champion Lisa Gunnarsson will compete in the women’s pole vault, starting at 1:00 p.m. ET, while two of the top hurdlers in the nation, Alia Armstrong and Eric Edwards Jr., are down for the women’s and men’s 100m hurdles and 110m hurdles, respectively.
