Sydney McLaughlin sees room for improvement after breaking women’s 400m hurdles world record – We’re pushing boundaries

[ad_1]

Sydney McLaughlin, on Friday, July 22, broke the world record in the women’s 400m hurdles at the world championships in Eugene, Oregon. She finished the race in 50.68 seconds, getting past her own record by 0.73 seconds. The American hurdler defeated second-placed Netherlands’ hurdler Femke Bol by 1.59 seconds.

Dalilah Muhammad, who was deemed as McLaughlin’s strongest rival, finished in third spot after finishing the race in 53.13 seconds.

In the meantime, the 22-year-old McLaughlin reckoned that women’s 400m hurdles still has some distance to travel and has scope for improvement.

“I haven’t had a chance to watch it, so I’ll have to do that and go back and talk to my coach. But I think there are always things to improve on. I think we’re pushing the boundaries of the sport, especially in our event. But I think there are always things to improve on. I think we’re pushing the boundaries of the sport, especially in our event,” McLaughlin was quoted as saying.

Bol, who missed out on the top-spot by a whisker, heaped praise on McLaughlin for putting her best foot forward.

“It was crazy. She was so far in front at the end, I was almost doubting if I really had a good race. Then, I saw the time and I thought, ‘Wow, that explains a lot’,” Bol said.

After McLaughlin won the gold medal, World Athletics president Sebastian Coe gave her a US$100,000 cheque.

Earlier, Russia’s Yuliya Pechonkina held the world record of 52.34 for as long as 16 years. In 2019, Muhammad got the numbers down to 52.20 at US championships, after which McLaughlin came to the party.
