Sydney McLaughlin Runs US #1, Breaks 400m NJ State Record

Sydney McLaughlin's specialty may be the 400m hurdles, but a dazzling performance at the New Jersey Group Championships proved that the national indoor record holder is not quite done with the flat quarter mile just yet.

McLaughlin ran 52.44 in the flat 400m to set a new national leader and New Jersey state record.
