SummaryEdit

10 years off his greatest success, returning bronze medalist Alonso Edward was the early leader, burning the turn with Reynier Mena making up the stagger on Álex Quiñónez to his outside, the next contender and Jerome Blake on the far outside. From dead last mid-turn, Quiñónez began to gain as they came off the turn. At a much faster cadence, he passed Edward 50 metres from the finish and was off for gold. On the far inside, Jereem Richards also accelerated and was catching people from behind. And last onto the home stretch, Yancarlos Martínez was also picking up ground. Martínez passed Edwards 8 meters from the finish, crossing two metres behind Quiñónez and a metre behind Richards.
