Omar McLeod, who has a season-best of 13.01, should easily win the men’s 110m hurdles.

Ronda Whyte, 54.33, Janieve Russell, 54.75, Shiann Salmon, 54.97, Leah Nugent, 55.34 and Rushell Clayton, 56.80 are the top five in the women’s 400m hurdles.

Shanieka Ricketts, 14.98m, Kimberly Williams, 14.69m and Sabina Allen, 14.21m, are the leading three in the women’s triple jump.

The men’s triple jump will be the battle of the college men—Carey McLeod, 17.17m and O’Brien Waysome, 17.05m.
Tajay Gayle, 8.69m, will be challenged by McLeod, 8.34m, and Damar Forbes, 8.29m in the men’s long jump.
