Jasmine Camacho-Quinn gives Puerto Rico the second gold medal in its history at the Olympic Games

The Puerto Rican runner Jasmine Camacho-Quinn gave Puerto Rico the second gold medal in its history on Sunday by winning the women’s 400-meter hurdles event.

The 24-year-old Puerto Rican, who broke the Olympic record in the semis in the morning, stopped the clock in the final with a time of 12.37 seconds.

It is the first gold medal in athletics for a Puerto Rican delegation, after the hurdler Javier Culson also obtained bronze in London 2012. In addition, the second gold medal after the feat of the tennis player Monica Puig in Rio 2016.

Overall, it is the tenth medal for a Puerto Rican athlete in the Olympic Games and second for a woman in a row.

American Kendra Harrison followed in second with 12.52 seconds, while Jamaica’s Megan Tapper finished third with 12.55.
