Emmanuele Bamidele of Nigeria clocked the fastest time in the 400m from heat 1 with a new meet record of 44.78 seconds. Nijel Amos clocked the second fastest time overall while Trinidad and Tobago's Michael Cedenio from heat 1 and Jamaica's Nathon Allen from heat 2 clocked 45,57 seconds to share the 3rd place.
