Devon Allen is the fastest man of 2022 in the 110 hurdles. The American, capable of going up to 12.84 (the third best mark in history), has been in the news in recent months because he signed a contract with the American football Philadelphia Eagles. He announced that, after the Eugene World Cup, where he aspires to gold, he leaves athletics and focuses on this other sport. Since that announcement, the truth is that he is performing at a stratospheric level. Of course, in the past ‘trials’ of the USA he could not get past third position in a final in which Daniel Roberts (13.03) won ahead of Trey Cunningham (13.08).
He did not want to inform his son of his ailments
The fact is that, as reported in the United States, Allen competed in the final on Sunday just after his father had died. Louis Allen Jr. passed away on Saturday at the age of 63. Apparently, the father had not been in good health for weeks, but he did not want to inform his son so as not to condition him in preparation for the Nationals and the Eugene World Cup that starts on July 15, as reported by his Bernadette woman.
He watched his son compete in two Olympics and was ready to see him play in the NFL after the former Oregon wide receiver signed with the Philadelphia Eagles a couple of months ago.
