2019 Women’s 400 Hurdles World Rankings

As Dalilah Muhammad broke her own WR, Sydney McLaughlin ran faster than what the all-time best had been when the year began. (VICTOR SAILER/PHOTO RUN)

THE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR is obviously No. 1 here, with Dalilah Muhammad pounding out WRs of 52.20 and 52.16. She and Sydney McLaughlin split their 4 races 2-2, but Muhammad with the WC gold got the nod. The No. 2-rated McLaughlin had only those 2 defeats by Muhammad in her loss column. Muhammad on the other hand, was only 3rd in the DL Final won by McLaughlin, so also had a loss-column entry courtesy of Shamier Little…

LITTLE CHOSE THE WRONG TIME for her worst finish of the year, a 4th at USATF meaning there would be no World Champs for her. But her overall DL record (a win, two 2nds including the Final and a 3rd) was enough to slot her at No. 3 ahead of Doha bronze medalist Rushell Clayton…

THIS YEAR’S TOP 10 included multiple former No. 1s: Muhammad (’16), Little (’18), No. 6 Zuzana Hejnová (’13 & ’15) and No. 10 Kori Carter (’17)… Hejnová moved to No. 5 on the event’s all-time scoring list, her 62 points trailing only Deon Hemmings (74), 2. Lashinda Demus (68) and Kim Batten & Sandra Farmer-Patrick (66 each).
