Thankfully for Christine it wasn’t 399.5 metres!

12th August 2013
Not sure if I’ve ever seen an athletics race with such a dramatic finish as the 400 metres for women in the current World Athletics Championships in Moscow.

At no stage did Christine Ohurogu lead that race until the final centimetres! We know all about Christine’s ability to finish her races strongly but catching the unfortunate Botswanan, Amantle Montsho on the line to win by 4/1000th of a second was extraordinary even by her standards.

Christine was only a couple of months old when Kathy Cook set her British record and it was entirely fitting that this ultimate championship performer should register the fastest ever British time in this most dramatic of races.

Clearly the charming Ohurogu was incredibly emotional after her victory and she must now be Britain’s top 400 metres runner of all time!
