U.S. Open Track and Field at Madison Square Garden

On Monday I posted a shot put image as my Photo of the Week, and here are some more photos from this past weekend’s inaugural U.S. Open Track & Field event at Madison Square Garden. The meet supplants the Millrose Games, which moved to the Armory after being held at MSG from 1914 to 2011. Photos by Avi Gerver, ©Madison Square Garden, L.P.
