HAMILTON, Bermuda, (April 28) – Abby Steiner won the women’s 200-meter dash on another windy day at the USATF Bermuda Grand Prix 2024 at Flora Duffy Stadium on Sunday.

Making her season debut in the half-lap event, Steiner, the three-time NCAA champion, posted a wind-aided time of 22.71 seconds (3.0 m/s) to streak away from her rivals as she continues to fine-tune her fitness as she progresses through the racing season, following an offseason surgery last September.

Steiner Plans To Take It One Race At A Time

She told NBC in her after-race interview that after the last-season injury affected campaign last year, she plans to “Just it take one (race) at a time, looking back on this (race) seeing what we need to change, what we need to execute better and then do it again the next one.”

Finishing second to Steiner was her USA compatriot Kynnedy Flannel, who clocked 23.01, with third place going to Jamaica’s Ashanti Moore with 23.12.

Jereem Richards of Trinidad & Tobago finished strongly down the home straight to win the men’s 200m with 20.39secs (+4.9 m/s), edging out American Matthew Boling, who ran 20.42 in second place.
