SACRAMENTO, CA-The 2017 USATF Outdoor National Championships took place at Hornet Stadium in Sacramento, California. Of course, there were plenty of surprises. Tori Bowie claimed the women’s 100 meters, but Oregon’s Deajah Stevens became the U.S. champion in the 200 meters. There was no real surprise in the women’s long jump as Tianna Bartoletta dominated. Ameer Webb broke through in the men’s 200 meters to earn victory.
Texas A&M star Fred Kerley continues to impress in the men’s 400, streaking to a time of 44.03 seconds to win that event. Then there is shot put stud Ryan Crouser. Crouser won the men’s shot put on his last throw, a toss that is the best in the world in 2017. Crouser’s throw flew some 74 feet and 3 3/4 inches. It was a great four-day meet for track and field.
