Dalilah Muhammad, who ran the fastest time in the women’s 400-meter hurdles this year, won the gold medal in the finals at the Rio Olympics on Thursday night. The race started at 9:15 p.m. ET and also included fellow American Ashley Spencer. The 26-year-old Muhammad was favored to win the race in Rio, especially after winning her heat and having the best time in the semifinals. She became the first American woman ever to win gold in the event.


  1. I liked what one of the commentators said during her race. She had interviewed Dalilah Muhammad earlier and reported that that she (Dalilah) said: “I started racing when I was 7 and I was never the best, so I just kept working hard.” Now she’s the fastest woman in the world at this event.
