Results as the Paris team fills out

He plays

The U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials concluded with two of Team USA’s biggest stars, Ray Benjamin and Sidney McLaughlin-Levrone.

The penultimate event was the men’s 400m hurdles with Benjamin leading the 26-year-old hurdler from start to finish, setting a meet record and world-leading time of 46.46.

But U.S. track and field may have saved its best athlete in the end — and McLaughlin-Levrone did it.

The defending Olympic champion and world record holder in the women’s 400m hurdles put on a dazzling display around the track, running almost alone. When McLaughlin-Levrone crossed the finish line, she quickly discovered that she had smashed her previous world record with a time of 50.65 seconds.

McLaughlin-Lefron is the only woman in the history of the event to run under 51 seconds in the 400 hurdles.

McLaughlin-Levron and Benjamin highlight what was an exciting final day at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials:

Emotions ran rampant on the track after the women’s 100m hurdles final.

Masai Russell stunned Hayward Field and the athletics world with a stunning win in 12.25 seconds. Alysha Johnson ran a personal best of 12.31 seconds (12.302 seconds) to take second place.

Johnson gave perhaps the most emotional post-race interview at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials.

“It was all God. Everybody was saying all the time that I wasn’t good enough (and) I didn’t deserve it. So, I did it my way, my team’s way, the way it was supposed to be,” Alicia Johnson told Louis Johnson. “This is for the kids in the ghettos, this is for the people who came from nothing, this is for everyone who looks like me and who has ever doubted me. And I did it with a black cross on my chest. This is what I stand for and I’m paving the way for everyone in my position.”Tyler Dragon

Hall finished sixth in the 400m final in 44.94 seconds. He holds the fastest 400m time in the world this year, having clocked 44.59 seconds in the semi-finals of the trials on June 23. He said after the final that he would not stop training until he was sure his season was over, adding that he was not sure whether he expected to qualify for the relay because such decisions were “very political”.

The relay group is determined by relay coaches Mike Marsh and Michelle Freeman. They will announce the team no later than July 8, but the athletes and their individual coaches will be notified sooner — possibly late Sunday night — so the athletes can begin training together. –Lindsey Schnell

McLaughlin-Levrone posted the fastest time in the 400m hurdles semifinals on Saturday, clocking 52.48 seconds to easily advance to Sunday’s finals.

Every time McLaughlin-Levrone steps onto the track, there is a chance to set a world record, and some expect that to happen Sunday. She is the defending gold medalist and a strong favorite to repeat in Paris. McLaughlin-Levrone also won gold in the 4x400m in Tokyo and is expected to be on the relay team again.
