MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Westmoreland's Jason Robinson posted a time of 16.25 seconds in the 100-meter final at the U.S. Paralympic Team Trials in Minneapolis, Friday.

The time wasn't enough to qualify in the event to represent Team USA at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games in August, but it was his best time in the event this year and improved on his 16.44 in the prelims the day prior.

Despite not qualifying in this event, J-Rob will compete for a spot in the 1500m and 5000m finals on Saturday with distance being his stronger style versus the sprint.

The 5000m final takes place at 11:20 a.m. eastern time with the 1500m final starting at 5:55 p.m. eastern time.
