Sanya Richards gunning for Beijing 400 meters gold

4 April 2008

For Sanya Richards, 2007 was a disappointment even though she dominated most of her competition.

The top women’s 400 meters runner in the world, illness dashed her hopes winning the world championship in Japan, a bitter blow that only intensified when she recovered and swamped her competition in races later in the year.

With the Beijing Olympics fast approaching, Richards says she’s healthy now and is determined to claim the gold medal on the world’s biggest stage for track.

"This is what I’ve been training for all my life, to go to Beijing as the favorite," Richards said Thursday at the Texas Relays. "I really want this gold medal. I don’t know what I’m going to do if I don’t get it."
