Browne Cements Name In History Books on Last Day of National Championships

MIRAMAR, FLORIDA – It was a day of long distances and quick speed at the Ansin Sports Complex to bring the 2022 U.S. Paralympics Track & Field National Championships presented by Toyota to a close. Paralympic silver medalist Richard Browne (Jackson, Mississippi) shattered the world record in the men’s 100m T64 recording a time of 10.53, shaving eight one-hundredths of a second off the previous record. The record stood since Browne took the world time at the 2015 World Para Athletics Championships. The time stands as the fastest 100m ever run by a single or double leg amputee in a Paralympic event.

 

Triple Paralympic champion Nick Mayhugh (Manassas, Virginia) grabbed a national title in the men’s 100m T38 while Paralympic champion Daniel Romanchuk (Mount Airy, Maryland) continued to dominate the men’s T54 taking two more wins and a near impossible A-standard time in the 5000m competition as he glided through the track solo.

 

“I’m feeling healthy, happy to meet some people and have fun which is all I can ask for,” said Mayhugh. “Looking forward to next year and the world champs.”

 

Three-time Paralympian David Brown (St. Louis, Missouri) snagged a 100m national championship along with two-time Paralympian Gianfranco Iannotta (Garfield, New Jersey) continuing to prevail in the men’s T52 division. Catherine Carey (hometown) added two more wins to her collection one day after breaking a world record in the women’s long jump. It was a two-title day for Paralympic champion Brittni Mason (Cleveland, Ohio) who took the top spot in the 100 and 200m sprints.

 

“It’s the last meet of the season so I was able to get two gold medals,” said Mason. “I’m going to take some down time now, doing some recovery and fitness during the off season and getting ready to amp up for next year.”

 

More than 70 athletes descended upon the sunshine state for the 2022 National Championships presented by Toyota. The three-day event concluded the season for U.S. Paralympics Track & Field as athletes look ahead to a world championship year in 2023. Full results from the meet are available to view here.
