Oh. Is that all? Well, they'll get faster this summer. Not a bad start. Like a rustbuster.

Wariner looked very strong in the race, which was run under fairly ideal conditions -- temp in the mid-70s and only a light wind.

Wariner, running in lane 4, had made up the stagger on Williamson in lane 5 coming out of the first turn. I don't know what his 200 split was, but he was out clearly leading the field. He had a substantial lead coming into the homestretch and held his form well to run what may be one of the faster times this year. It still wasn't a meet record, though; Michael Johnson ran 43.75 back in 1997 or 1998.

Williamson closed very well over the last 150 to pass a number of runners. And 44.88 isn't a bad start for him at all.

44.12 in April is very, very good. Along with his 200m PR earlier in the year it appears to me he will continue to improve. I say he runs 20.10 and 43.70 this year.

There is a decent chance that no other runner will run 44.12 this year. Last year no one else did.

43.75 by Johnson is the 'April' record.

44.12 is the #2 all-time for April.

Nobody runs a PB in April...

I should have said "SB". But Johnson opened with that 43.75 and then only had 44.12 subsequently! (1997) He still won the WC and Zurich.

You're right -- the fastest non-USA time for 400m is Roberto Hernández's Cuban national record at 44.14.
