American Sydney McLaughlin set this year’s world-best time on Sunday by winning the 400-metre hurdles in 52.83 seconds at the Music City Track Carnival in Nashville, Tennessee. Her victory came in a tune-up meet for the US Olympic trials at Eugene, ahead of next month’s Tokyo Olympics.


McLaughlin will be among the favourites after a runner-up 400 hurdles showing at the 2019 world championships in Doha, her personal best of 52.23 leaving her behind the world-record effort of 52.16 behind winner Dalilah Muhammad, the reigning Olympic champion.


McLaughlin, 21, surpassed the 53.12 set on Monday by American Shamier Little.
