Sydney McLaughlin in the women's 400m hurdles at Tokyo 2020
  • Save

The women’s 400m hurdles heats will get underway on Tuesday’s Day 5 at the World Athletics Championships here at Hayward Field in Oregon and the following is the start list for each section of the event. Olympic champion Sydney McLaughlin, defending world champion Dalilah Muhammad and Femke Bol will all begin their title pursuit here tonight.

McLaughlin, the world leader with her personal best of 51.41 seconds, set to win the US Championships on this track last month, will be the first of the “big three” on the track in heat two and she is expected to advance comfortably.

The American biggest threat should come from Ukraine’s Anna Ryzhykova who is the second quickest in the field, while Sara Gallego of Spain should also be in the mix in this heat. Read more: DAY 5 – World Athletics Championships order of events schedule, start lists, how to watch

Reigning world champion Muhammad has recovered from the hamstring injury that kept her out of the USATF Championships last month and she said she’s ready to run fast here in Eugene. The former world record holder and Olympic silver medalist in Tokyo last summer will open her title defense from the fourth heat and she should have little concerns about making progress.

Jamaica’s Shiann Salmon and Lina Nielsen of Great Britain are also starting in this section and they should cross the finish line among the top four runners tonight.

Meanwhile, Olympic bronze medalist Femke Bol headlines the starters in heat three and the Dutch star will start against Briton’s Jessie Knight, Panama’s Gianna Woodruff, and Zenéy van der Walt of South Africa.

Another young and exciting talent to watch for here at Hayward Field is USA’s Britton Wilson, the NCAA champion and third fastest in the world this year at 53.08. She will start in heat five against Jamaica’s Rushell Clayton, the bronze medalist at Doha 2019.

The other heat in the women’s 400m hurdles on Tuesday will feature USA’s Shamier Little, Jamaica’s Janieve Russell and Viktoriya Tkachuk of Ukraine.
