Puerto Rican payday masters Grand Prix meet website launched

With top prizes of $200 and entry fees of $25 per event, this looks like a winner — as telegraphed a month ago. Long hurdles champion Tony Echeandia has launched a website for the Puerto Rico Masters Grand Prix meet, which reveals: “The prize money is coming from private sponsors like Tony’s own company and others he does business with both in NYC and PR. It will be awarded to the first 5 positions in each event, and the Grand Prix events will be determined by the response received from the various athletes [who] wish to compete. The event … will be international with an open invitation to any athlete that wishes to compete from Europe.”

    Ken just “shot” an e-mail off to Tony. Is it your understanding that the age LIMIT is 60 for this event?

    It makes sense to have an event lets say if 5 age 80 athletes wanted to go. On the other hand, if only 2 age 40 athletes wanted to go maybe not. There should be equal treatment to a point. I can see an exception to the rule. If you had 2 top ranked people it certinly is an item of intrest to the public. A grand prix should have many athletes to make it GRAND. This is masters track….a different animal. I am going for a tan. I can see a qualification but I would be suprised.

    Sounds like a good event, well timed ahead of the Olympics. Don’t want to be travellind or competeing during the London Games. Keep us posted on entries.
