DEVONSHIRE, Bermuda, May 21 – The 2023 Bermuda Grand Prix at Flora Duffy Stadium is set to feature top athletes from around the world, including American champion Abby Steiner, who will headline the women’s 200-meters event. This competition, part of the 2023 World Athletics Continental Tour Gold series, has attracted numerous world and Olympic medalists.

Steiner aims to bounce back from a disappointing last-place finish in the 100m race at the Doha Diamond League meeting on May 5. The 23-year-old sprinter will be looking to regain her confidence in the event where she has experienced most of her success.

Having won both of her appearances in the 200m event this season, Steiner enters the Bermuda Grand Prix as the favorite to secure her third victory. With a personal best time of 21.77 seconds and a season best time of 22.23 seconds, the 2022 U.S. champion has proven her capabilities on the track.

However, Steiner will face tough competition from other talented athletes in the women’s 200m race. Among her chief challengers are American sprinter Anavia Battle and Jamaica’s Ashanti Moore, who finished second and third respectively, in Steiner’s last 200m outing at the Michael Johnson Invitational in March. – Read More: Jamaican Ashanti Moore hands Abby Steiner first loss of the season at Michael Johnson Invitational

Moore has been steadily improving throughout the season and has achieved a personal best time of 22.49 seconds. Meanwhile, Battle’s season best stands at 22.58 seconds, but she has shown the potential to reach a faster time of 21.95 seconds in her best form.

Another formidable contender for the title is Anthonique Strachan from The Bahamas. Strachan, the 2012 World U20 Championships gold medalist in both the 100m and 200m events, enters the competition with a season best time of 22.59 seconds.
