Sydney McLaughlin Narrowly Edged Out in World Championships

@FloTrack

It took a world record run to take down Sydney McLaughlin.

Racing at the IAAF World Championships in Qatar, Dalilah Muhammad got off to a fast start in the 400 hurdle final. The lead was not comfortable for long. The former Wildcat made up significant ground down the backstretch. Unfortunately, Sydney ran out of track, falling to Muhammad by .07 seconds. McLaughlin’s time of 52.23 was the second-fastest 400H run in women’s track and field history.

“I knew it was going to be fast. I didn’t know it was going to be that fast,” McLaughlin said after the race. “Being able to come away with a PR (personal record) and the second-fastest time, it’s just amazing.”

McLaughlin is poised to be a star nine months from now at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

    All congrats to Syd, but her 52.23 was NOT the second fastest time in history. Muhammad held the record at 52.20 and lowered it to 52.16; she holds the top two times.
