400m wr on watch now
400m wr on watch now
People laughed when her coach said she was aiming to break the 400m world record....
WHO IS LAUGHING NOW???
I wonder how much training is necessary to go for a sub 48 or wr attempt. Could she break 48 this year In the open? Or would she need a full training cycle
None of the other runners were under 49
Similar to Allyson Felix in 2015.
Looks like theres only two women who have ever broken 47 seconds… the record being 47.60.
What is SM’s best 400 time?
Maybe she has a shot at it?
What really impressed me is that she did this two days after her insane 400mH world record. Her body is still recovering from that run.
Michael Johnson ran a 42.9 leg, three tenths faster than his WR. Michael Norman has run a 43.06 split, four tenths faster than his PB. So McLaughlin could almost certainly run a 48.3, just for starters. I’m guessing she’ll get close to 48, or break it, in the next year, barring injury.
Yeah I think she's near all of the 1980's iron curtain women now and faster than Flo-Jo's fastest split. Probably has a chance.

47.91 relay split is quite a way from 47.60 from blocks. There have been faster splits and, for example, Mu's split in Tokyo was 48.37.
American record is 48.7, I think, so lets see if she can break that one first.
Uh, I had 47.73 on my Timex watching the live feed. I'm pretty good on the watch, so I've been told. So it's more like 47.7. Let's give credit where credit is due.
She hasn't broken the WR, so those who laughed before are still laughing.
She could run 48 in the 400 hurdles and I wouldn't care. It's a joke event.
Be a real track athlete and run a real event like the 400.
47.91 on a Relay is worth about a 49 The Rule is add 1 to 1.2 Seconds for the Running Start (The Exception Obviously is the Lead Off leg)
That said it would not surprise me if she could run 48 Low in the open 400 This Year, and she is Young 22-23 Years old so improvement is probable.
The American record is actually the goal for this year. I don't see her ever breaking the WR, she is much further away from that than most people think. To even make a serious attempt she would need to become a 200/400 athlete exclusively for a period of time. There is no way she is going to do that with unfinished business in the 400h and I know she what test herself in the 100h. Btw, next year, she will be able command $100 for a WR; she is not about to walk away from the 400h with so much food left on the table.
Allyson Felix split 47.7 but only ran 49.2 from the blocks. So who knows exactly what Sydney will run from blocks.
People saying she should go 100hs. Yeah I think that idea just went out the window lol. She’s a 400m runner. Could of been great in the multis tho
She screwed up by lowering it so much. She could of took a half second off each time and gotten multiple checks.
