Michael Norman Wins the Pre 400 Meter


He didn’t get the world record observers thought he might, but Michael Norman did win comfortably in the men’s 400-meter at the Diamond League Prefontaine Classic at Stanford University in California on Sunday. 
Christian Coleman and Rai Benjamin were also big winners at the annual event, held in Stanford this year because of stadium remodeling in Eugene, Oregon. 
Norman, who holds the world’s fastest time this year, ran the men’s 400 in 44.62 seconds to highlight a 1-2-3 finish by the Americans. Kahmari Montgomery was second, finishing in 45.12 seconds, followed by defending Diamond League champion Fred Kerley in 45.33 seconds. It was the first time Norman and Kerley raced each other since Kerley won both the NCAA and national titles in 2017, which was also the last time Norman lost in the 400.
