Future Kentucky track star sets high school record

Future University of Kentucky track runner, and US Olympian, Sydney McLaughlin just made a bunch of girls look like children. Fun fact though, they’re all her age and she dominated them. So much so, that she just set the record for fastest 400m relay split in high school track history with a time of 49.85 seconds. No, not just her high school, a record for any high school track runner ever.

McLaughlin is the one wearing the bright pink shorts that is in second to dead last at the hand off. As the video progresses, watch as she makes up ground in an incredible fashion.

What makes this video even better is the fan commentary in the background as the guy realizes just how fast Sydney McLaughlin can be. This girl is going to make Kentucky Track and Field a spectator sport in the next few years.
