USC runners have been involved in two incredible races the past two days in Tokyo and tonight, Dalilah Muhammad was involved in the better one.
Muhammad led most of the 400 hurdles until Sydney McLaughlin won in a world-record time. Muhammad won the gold medal in 2016 at Rio and is one of the great runners in USC history.

The greatest race for 24 hours. Incredible women’s 400m hurdles final. Actually a better race than the men’s. McLaughlin 51.46, Muhammad 51.58. Bol’s 52.03 would have been a world record only a couple of months ago. I’ll wait 11 minutes before saying anything else.— Matt Lawton (@Lawton_Times) August 4, 2021
