Article source: Athletics


A 25-year-old Texas A&M athlete Fred Kerley broke the 25-year-old collegiate record in the 400m with a time of 43.70 at the NCAA West Preliminary rounds in West NCAA preliminary round in Austin, Texas on Friday, May 26.

Previous NCAA record holder (44.00) Quincy Watts, the 1992 Olympic champion for the USA, was in the stands watching Kerley's 43.70 record run.  Kerley's 43.70 seconds in 400m puts hi in the 7th place in history of men's 400m. 

Two weeks ago at the SEC outdoor championships Kerley posted a personal best and world-leading time of 44.09. 

“I was running smart yesterday to set up the race for today,” said Kerley. “Coach Francique and I were talking about the collegiate record being set in Austin and it would be wonderful to break it here in front of him. I just want to keep on improving.”
