• Salwa Eid Naser Clocks Stunning 48.14 to Win 400m World Championships Gold

Article source: Athletics


Salwa Eid Naser of Bahrein won the women's 400m World Championships gold in one of the fastest times in history in Doha on Thursday (3).

In the back straight Naser stormed by Olympic champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo to take the World title in a stunning 48.14 seconds. 21-year-old Nigerian born Eid Naser's winning time was the 3rd fastest time in history and the fastest in 34 years to become. It was also the 5th 400m race in 7 days for the 21-year-old Bahreini athlete after she competed in the mixed 4x400m relay earlier in the championships.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo destroyed her personal best to took the silver in 48.37 the 6th fastest time in history while Shericka Jackson of Jamaica took the bronze in a lifetime best of 49.47.

East Germany’s Marita Koch set a doubtful women's 400m World record of 47.60 seconds back in 1985.
