    USA Hurdler Sydney McLaughlin Does The Impossible

    The New Jersey native never fails to impress and this weekend was no different. The USA hurdler Sydney McLaughlin managed to break the record and rewrite history, reported ESPN. She’s a once-in-a-lifetime athlete and is obliterating her own and any other records set prior. Believe it or not, for the fourth time in 13 months, the 22-year-old McLaughlin set the world record. Recently, she ran the 400-meter hurdle at the world championship in 50.6 seconds. Essentially, shattering her old record by .73 seconds.

    “It’s unreal,” McLaughlin said in the post-race interview on the track.

    She smoked the Netherlands hurdler Femke Bol by 1.59 seconds. In race terms, this is a lot of time and quite a large margin in a physical sense. With that being said, while winning the World Championship by a convincing margin, she still didn’t seem to be satisfied. In fact, she emphasized she’s yet to run the “perfect race,” according to CBS Sports.

    “I haven’t had a chance to watch it, so I’ll have to do that and go back and talk to my coach,” Sydney McLaughlin said. “But I think there’s always things to improve on. I think we’re pushing the boundaries of the sport, especially in our event.”

    Not only was she awarded a gold medal for her historic efforts but she was also greeted by the World Athletics president Sebastian Coe with a $100,000 check for breaking those world records. Nothing better than doing what one loves while making bonuses on top of the normal compensation.

    What’s Next for Sydney McLaughlin?

    While she’s arguably one of the top athletes in track, she’s only 22 years old with so much more to prove. She arguably hasn’t reached her prime as of yet and appears to be competing with herself. Any new record she’d beat would be previously hers. She’s literally chasing herself and will be for a very long time. Congratulations to Syndey McLaughlin and her team!

    “My coach thinks there’s a lot more to be done,” she said. “At some point, we could do maybe the 4, or maybe the 100 hurdles. He says to just really enjoy the 400 hurdles while I’m doing it, and then, if you want to expand, go from there. So, the sky’s the limit for sure.”
