Sydney McLaughlin’s 51.61 Won’t Count

Sydney McLaughlin blazed the track to open up her season wit’s a 51.61! A time that would be the #3 time in history but it won’t count as hurdle five was put in the wrong spot.

Did you see the race?

This run by sydney has us thinking…

Is Sydney McLaughlin already in world record shape?

Initially one might think having the hurdles in the wrong spot would slow you down as it cold mess up your rhythm. The other possibility this shows is the women’s hurdles heights should be higher if the goal is to make the event different from the 400m.
