Sydney McLaughlin broke another record today

Basketball season may be over, but the most famous athlete on Kentucky’s campus is still going. Sydney McLaughlin made more history today, running the 400m dash in 50.07 seconds, a new NCAA Freshman record. McLaughlin is the second fastest person to run the 400m at the collegiate level ever behind Courtney Okolo and now leads the world in the event.

Oh yeah — it was raining:

Go, Syd, go!

      Yes! She could have gone straight to the pro track circuit but wanted to compete as a college student athlete and chose UK and Coach Flo.

    What I am amazed at is she is wearing a blue jersey in the photo … but white when running.

      Ahhh. Nice photo. Just wish it had been of the actual meet. (Love all of his photos.)

      She’s just that fast, she changed mid race and no one noticed.
