The National Olympic trials champion, Stephenie Ann Mcpherson has secured her spot in the 400m final of the Olympics, but not only that as she set a personal best of 49.34 seconds, erasing her previous best of 49.61 seconds she set in Jamaica.

Mcpherson’s time, also qualified as the fastest, going into the finals, even beating Allyson Felix, who placed second in the same semifinals.


Candice Mcleod of Jamaica is also in the finals of the Women’s 400m finals, finishing second in a new personal best of, 49.51 seconds, however together with Stephenie Mcpherson they will need to run fast against the likes of the Bahamian Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas, who won her heat in 49.60 seconds easily and has the world-leading time of 49.08 seconds.

Running well also is Marileidy Paulino of the Dominican Republic, who won her heat in the second-fastest qualifying time of 49.38, to set a new National Record, and put her country safely in the finals.

Sadly for the third competing Jamaican female Roneisha Mcgregor, she placed third in her heat in 50.34 which was not enough to get her into the finals so at this time with their advantageous position, Mcpherson and Mcleod will need to put in the hard work to secure, medals for Jamaica.

The final is set for Friday morning, August 6th at 7:35 AM.
