2022 Women’s 400 Hurdles World Rankings

Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone snuck a peek at Femke Bol as she finished off her second WR of the year. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

LAST YEAR WE HEADLINED, “And Now The Sub-52 Barrier Is History.” Make that sub-51, as Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone continues to rewrite the event’s all-time list. Another year, another pair of WRs (51.41 & 50.68). She ran in only 4 finals, but dominated all of them in earning AOY honors…

AMONG MERE MORTALS, former record claimant Dalilah Muhammad found herself supplanted by up-and-coming Femke Bol, who beat her 3–0, capturing both WC silver and (in Syd’s absence) the DLF gold… The Dutch star is some 8 months younger than SML.
