WALNUT, Calif. (April 14) – Reigning world champion in the 400m, Michael Norman, will kickstart his season at the 63rd Annual Mt. SAC Relays 2023 by competing in the men’s 100m Elite race on Saturday, April 14 at Hilmer Lodge Stadium.

The 25-year-old sprinter announced earlier this year that he would be switching to the shorter sprint event, and his performance at this meet will be a significant factor in determining his progress. “I can start challenging myself and trying something new in attempting to medal and break records in the 100m,” he said in February.

The final section of the event, which is the third heat, will feature Kyree King, Cravont Charleston, Ilias Garcia, and Brandon Carnes, adding to the excitement of the day’s top-class sprinting.
