Update from Team USA:

Dalilah Muhammad, Sydney McLaughlin and Anna Cockrell won heats to continue hopes of 400m hurdles final showdown

Sydney Michelle McLaughlin is the current record-holder in the women’s 400-meter hurdles. She set that amazing landmark June 27 at the United States Olympic Trials in Oregon. Earlier in her career she competed for the University of Kentucky. Now her sites are set on the Tokyo Olympic Games. She’ll turn age 22 while in Tokyo, born August 7. McLaughlin is from Dunellen, New Jersey and graduated from Union Catholic Regional High School.

"...it’s such a breath of fresh air to find true stability in Jesus."

After setting that world's record 51.90 seconds in June, McLaughlin gave the glory to God: “I felt immediate excitement and overall gratefulness. I owe it all to God, my family and my team. I’m still in disbelief, but it’s truly just faith, trusting the process, and seeing my hard work along with the gift of God being put into action.”

In a May 16 post on Instagram, she wrote: “Some days, the friendships and support are through the roof. Others, you wouldn’t even know it was there. Especially in a world full of inconsistency, it’s such a breath of fresh air to find true stability in Jesus. As humans, we are constantly shifting our efforts toward one another based off emotions and circumstances. The peace of knowing I will always have a friend, always have His support, and always have His LOVE; makes even the loneliest of moments feel full. My soul finds rest in knowing He is not like us. He doesn’t change, and He will never leave me. Giving the ability to be completely content, no matter the situation. Simply because, I don’t have to face it alone. That. Is. Love. ?
