Plug pulled on 2012 Puerto Rico Grand Prix masters meet
World-class long hurdler Tony Echeandia writes: “I am writing to tell you that the Gran prix meet for 2012 is being canceled. Unfortunately I received less than 40 entrants and that is not enough athletes to have the type of meet I was wishing to celebrate. I will try again next year or the year after; maybe I didn’t promote it enough.” A shock but not a surprise, given the relatively short notice. The meet was first mentioned in early March. Prize money was to be a draw, but it wasn’t enough to overcome other issues. Hope next time is a success.
