News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Oct. 12, 2018: The 21-year-old son of former West Indies fast bowler, Winston Benjamin, says he will be running for the United States.

University of South California three-time NCAA Division champion, Rai Benjamin, made the official move recently, not long after becoming the third fastest man in history over the 400 meters hurdles.

Benjamin, just this past season, claimed the 2018 NCAA title in 47.02 seconds, the time only slower than Abderrahman Samba, who ran 46.98 just this season, and world record holder, the United States’ Kevin Young.

Benjamin follows Miguel Francis, who also switched allegiance from Antigua and Barbuda in recent times.
