Eric Cray 2021 and Before

Eric Cray 2021

Eric Cray – World Champs is within range for Bearded Master

The Great Eric Cray Makes it title #5 at SEA Games

A Piece of History, The Great Eric Cray, proving once again why he is the greatest Hurdler in SEA Games History notching up his 5th consecutive title in the SEA Games 400 Hurdles. And his 7th SEA Games gold medal since he started in 2013 with the Philippine Team. He has 5 in the 400 Hurdles, 1 in the 100m, and the most prestigious of them all 1 in the 4×100 MIXED RELAY!

Cray was forced to withdraw from the 4×100 and 100m due to sciatic nerve issues with his hamstrings. But was able to stitch together another stunning Hurdles victory at the age of 33.  Being pushed to the line by long-time rival Quach Cong Lich.

Cray said he would like to aim for one more 400 Hurdles Olympics in 2024 (at which time he would then be 36 years of age). Cray competed in the 2016 Olympics in Rio and made the semi-finals in the 400 Hurdles finishing 18th of 24. But due to unforeseen circumstances in Europe narrowly missed out on qualifying for Tokyo in 2021.

Eric Cray bounces back with his first sub-50 since 2018

It has been over 3 years since The Great Eric Cray has dipped under 50 seconds. His last feat was at the 2018 Osaka Memorial where he clocked 49.68 on May 6, 2018. Surprisingly Eric clocked the same time of 49.68 earlier today with a third-place run. Eric finished third behind Gerald Drummond (49.47) of Costa Rica and Shawn Rowe (49.53) of Jamaica at the NACAC New Life Invitational in Miramar, Florida.

Eric also beat Quincy Hall who had won the A-Race last weekend in Florida. Hall who ran 49.05 last week could only manage 49.82. Last week Cray won the B-Race in 50.40. In 5th place was former Olympian Jaheel Hyde of Jamaica in 49.86.

Eric Cray is a 4x SEA Games Champion, and 2017 Asian Champion in the 400 Hurdles. Made the 400 Hurdles Semi-Finals at the 2016  Rio Olympics finishing 18th or 24th overall. 

He has improved his performance in every race from 51.61, 51.20, 50.84, 50.77, 50.40, and now 49.68. The minimal standard for qualifying for the Olympics based on ranking sits at 49.42. With the outright standard at 48.90.  So far 20 men have run under 48.90, with the next 20 under 49.42. Eric has until June 29 to improve his times to qualify for Tokyo meaning every week now counts.

Eric Cray wins Men’s B Race in another Seasons Best

June 1, 2021

4X SEA Games Champion Eric Cray won the Mens B Race of the American Track League at Duval County on 31 May 2021. Cray has improved his season’s best in each race with 51.61, 51.20, 50.84, and 50.77. And in his latest stint 50.40. Cray won from Rilwan Alowonle (Nigeria, 50.98) and Jordin Andrade (Cape Verde, 51.72). 

Eric has until June 29 to better the Olympic standard of 48.90, or at least be the 40th best ranked 49.42.  

The A Race was won by Quincy Hall (the USA, 49.04), Amere Lattin (the USA, 49.34), and Andre Clarke (JAM, 49.48).

At the same meet, other Philippine Olympic hopefuls Natalie Uy was 4th of 4 with 4.20m and Kristina Knott 7th in Heat 2 in 11.50 of the 100 Meters.

For a full list of Top Ranks for the Olympics

Eric Cray 50.84 and 50.77

Meets differing from the original schedule. After his 50.84 Season-best wins at the Corky Crofoot Shootout in Lubbock, Texas. Eric Cray clocked 50.77 to win at the APU Last Chance Twilight meet at Azusa. This was instead of the Mt. Sac Relays where Eric was not entered in the 400 Hurdles. 

The Pro Track Meet in LA on 14th May and USATF Open at Fort Worth on May 18 both did not have 400 Hurdles Men’s Events scheduled.

Eric’s season’s best time of 50.77 now means he has another month with the cut-off on June 29 to make the Olympic standard of 48.90, or 49.42 (the cut-off mark as of this time but could change closer to the Olympics).



Eric Cray 51.20 Race #2 400 Hurdles

Slowly but certainly, Eric Cray got his second 400 Hurdles race underway, this time clocking 51.20. While just under a decade ago, this would have been quite a good time as the Phi National Record was 51.26 of Renato Unso from 1983 until 2013.

It marked that Eric Cray has a long way to go towards the Olympic Standard of 48.90, which he needs to hit by June 29, 2021, to be on the plane to the Tokyo 2021 Olympics.

Eric Cray finished the last of the 8 athletes in the Men’s A Race at the Drake Relays in Pennsylvania state on April 24.  Brazil’s Alison Dos Santos was more than three seconds ahead and won in a personal best and world lead of 48.15, with Kenny Salmon of the USA at 48.87.

As of last week, there were 40 slots for the Olympics, and #40 was 49.42. With around 15 athletes below 48.90 outright qualifying standard. These lists will be updated here.

Below are the results of the Drake Relays 400 Hurdles, and interesting times between each hurdle have been recorded.

Eric Cray opens 400 Hurdles with his first run in 2 Years of 51.61

According to his meet schedule, Eric Cray’s next meet will be the Don Kirby Tailwind, on April 22 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Thank you to Mr. Bong Pedralvez for the quote.


“I wish him (Cray) all the best but he really has a mountain to climb,” noted former Philippine Sports Commission statistician turned athletic coach Andrew Pyrie, who runs the website and currently trains some outstanding local junior runners.

Pyrie said this might be Cray’s last chance to qualify for his second straight Olympic Games after making his debut at the Rio de Janeiro Olympiad five years ago “because he will be 35 years old when the next Olympics rolls around.”

Eric Cray Indoor PB in 400m  January 25, 2020

Cray may have gone down last month as the Greatest 400 Hurdler in SEA Games History.

But that did not exempt the hard-working 31-year-old from getting back into his routine.

Cray clocked 47.89 for the 400m Indoor on Friday Indoors, taking an easy win at the Martin Luther King at Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The mark was somewhat behind the 2017 SEA Games 200 & 400m Champion Trenten Beram, Philippine Indoor Record of 46.77.

But for Cray, 47.89 was quite a good start to the season.

Being that his 400 PB is officially only 47.67.

This is probably worth about a 47.0 second 400m outdoor, which is better than any of the current active Filipino 400m runners.

Cray then took third in the 60m Final in 6.71, a time he also mirrored earlier in the heats.

This is somewhat behind the 6.57 national record he established in 2015 at Albuquerque.

And also at the 2016 Asian Indoors, where he took the bronze.

Eric was also a semi-finalist at the 2016 World Indoors in 60m.

Eric has been running at the Martin Luther King meet at Albuquerque every year for the past 6-7 years. He currently holds 4 indoor records and 2 individual outdoor records for the Philippines.

Eric is lined up for the Asian Indoors in March.

He needs to hit 6.63 to qualify for the world indoor championships again.

Please note there are no 400 Hurdles at World Indoor Championships.
