Posted by: Watch Athletics

Reigning World 100m champion Fred Kerley from the United dominated the 400m at the Sydney Track Classic, a World Athletics Continental Tour - Challenger, on Saturday (11).

Less than two weeks after rolling to an easy 200m win in the Melbourne Track Classic, Kerley confirmed his track and field superstar status by claiming the 400m event in Sydney's Olympic Park in 44.65 seconds.

He defeated Australia's Luke van Ratingen, who was "miles" behind in second in 46.17, and Thailand's Joshua Atkinson 

"It was a good race. I want a good year ahead", said Kerley, who is planning to run a sprint double at this year's World Athletics Championships in Budapest.

The 27-year-old Kerley is only one of the three men in history to have run sub-10 seconds for the 100m (9.76), sub-20 for 200m (19.76), and sub-44 for 400m (43.64). The others are Wayde van Niekerk and Michael Norman.
