A minor setback on the road to a major comeback.
That was Jasmine Camacho-Quinn’s mindset as the 2020 Summer Olympics approached.
Camacho-Quinn was on track to compete in the women’s 100-meter hurdles finals at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
She ran into a stumbling block and was disqualified in the semifinals.
For Puerto Rico’s track star, it was a heartbreaking finish.
Camacho-Quinn didn’t let the Rio Olympics define her career; instead, she bounced back to win gold in the same event at the Tokyo Olympics.
She became only the second Puerto Rican to win a gold medal while competing for her country.
Jasmine Camacho-Quinn sat down with us to talk about her achievements at the Tokyo Olympics, her partnership with Buchanan’s, and much more.
Buchanan’s campaign, “What Glory We Are,” is hosting this interview.
Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with the launch of “What Glory We Are,” the brand’s new national advertising campaign that celebrates the unique duality of the Hispanic American experience as 100percent Hispanic and 100percent American aka 200percenters by committing to spotlighting Hispanic American narratives.

1 for us because it would have been difficult if we weren’t present.
However, the food we ate has left an indelible impression on us.
Music has also played an important role in our lives.
My mother made it a point to keep the music in our immediate vicinity.
To be honest, the traditions we had as a family shaped who I am today, and I am proud of that.
