Team USA wins 28 gold medals at NACAC Championships


 

The U.S. is one of the 32 member nations of the NACAC, one of six regional athletics associations affiliated with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). A total of 26 nations were represented in San Salvador.


Of the 28 gold medals won by Team USA, 16 were earned on the men's side with the other 12 belonging to the women. It was able to dominate because of its depth, claiming top honors in 28 out of a total 40 events. Team USA also demonstrated its resiliency as adverse weather conditions plagued the meet throughout and afternoon rain became commonplace over the three-day competition.

A total of five individuals for Team USA - three women and two men - were able to win multiple events.

Mary Harrelson (Knoxville, Tenn.) won both the 800 meter run and the 1,500m run during the multi-day competition. Harrelson ran 2 minutes, 5.10 seconds and 4:30.09, respectively.

Debbie Dunn (Norfolk, Va.) won the 400m dash in 52.68 seconds before anchoring the 4x400m relay in 3:29.15. Latosha Wallace (Baltimore, Md.) won the 400m hurdles in 56.54 seconds, before running the leadoff leg on the 4x400m team.
