Sanya Richards wins 400m at US meet

25 June 2006

Richards blew away the field to win the women's 400 in a world-leading 49.27 seconds. The 21-year-old runner, aiming for Valerie Brisco's American record of 48.83, has the three fastest times in the world this year.

"I definitely think it's attainable," she said of the record. "I think when I have only one round on a really good day, I'm definitely going to try for it, and I know it's going to happen."

Sanya Richards was considering a double - in the 200 and 400 - but pulled out of the 200 because the first round was scheduled just 50 minutes before the 400. She hopes the schedule will be more favorable next year.
