McLaughlin-Levrone lowers world record in 400-meter hurdles - ESPN

EUGENE, Ore. — Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone lowered her world record once again, running the 400-meter hurdles in 50.65 seconds Sunday to win the U.S. Olympic trials.

In only her fourth long hurdles race of the season, the 24-year-old defending Olympic champion cleared all 10 barriers with ease then went on a dead sprint to the line to break the record for the fifth time. Four of those marks have now come on the track at University of Oregon's Hayward Field.

She held her hand over her mouth and stared when she saw the time come up. The mark was .03 seconds better than her run at Hayward in the 2022 world championships.

«My husband asked me yesterday, 'What do you think you can do?' and I told him, 'I don't know,'» McLaughlin-Levrone said in an interview over the stadium PA system. «Then today, I crossed the line and I'm like, 'Oh, snap.' I'm blessed and happy to be here.»

In an event that used to be decided by steps or slivers, McLaughlin-Levrone's victory was by 1.99 seconds over Anna Cockrell and 2.12 over Jasmine Jones.

One of Kersee's biggest adjustments was dropping her to 14 strides between the early hurdles. It was a game-changer that has put her in a class by herself since she first set the record in 2021 — on the final day of Olympic trials on the track in Eugene, just like
