400m final record

400 Metres Betting

The 400 metre race takes place over one lap of the Olympic track. Athletes have to negotiate three bends and be well placed to accelerate in the home straight to cross the finishing line first.

One of the best known 400m figures is America€™s Michael Johnson (now a regular member of the BBC€™s commentary team) who still holds the World Record for the men€™s event at 43.18secs which he set in 1999. Kirana James of Grenada is the current Olympic champion.

The current Women's Olympic Champion is USA's Sanya Richards-Ross. The world record for this event is held by Marita Koch of Germany, who recorded a time of 47.60 in Canberra in 1985 still thought to be outside the reach of modern day athletes.
