    some amazing track and field athletes in this day. She's right there or near the top all-time track and field athlete.

    can't wait to see her go ahead and smash the regular 400 meter record just for fun.

    she'd beat 99.99 of world men or women running a 400, while she did 400 hurdles

    mind blowing freak

    She lived up to the hype right from high school

    I am very familiar with her since sheís been 14 years old because only lived 15 miles from her high school so always in the newspapers back then

    I watch the last few nights all the event itís pretty good

    Thereís rumors she might try to run the regular 400 m thatís a little different though

    Tonight too good events

    The men won Gold in the 4x400 too, to finish the world championships with 33 total medals.

    This breaks the total medal record of 31 set by East Germany in 1987. The US also got 13 gold medals, on shy of the 14 gold medal record held by the US, set in 2005, 2007, and 2019.

    Nice race. Jamaica's exchanges weren't too good. Jamaica normally faster.
