Sydney McLaughlin praises God after breaking world record


U.S. Olympic gold medalist, Sydney McLaughlin, has praised God for her feat at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, United States. She had finished the 400meter hurdles in 50.68 seconds, breaking her own record she set at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 in 51.90 seconds.

The 22 year old wrote on Instagram after her win, "So, let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.' - Hebrews 4:16. Praise His name.
"What a beautiful day yesterday was. Preparing for this meet, the core of my team was centered around faith and belief. The amount of prayer coupled with hard work was divinely culminated in 50.68 seconds. By the grace of God, we accomplished our goal.

"Let's continue pushing the bounds of the sport because with God, all things are possible! God bless.”

In an interview with NBC Sports, she appreciated her coach for his contribution to her success.

She said, “I will have to start off by saying all the glory to God. These past few days getting ready for this race, Hebrews 4:16 has been on my mind, coming boldly to His throne to receive mercy and grace. And I think He really gave me the strength to do it today, so all the glory goes to God.

"Coming into this race, I just wanted to go out there and attack the whole thing. Coach Bobby Kersee and I have been training for this all year, and we wanted to go execute.

"The last 100 hurt really bad, but I'm really grateful for it, and I'm grateful for that time and bringing a medal home to Team USA.

"Honestly, we thought we would be able to go a little bit faster. But we are super grateful for that time; anything under 51 was a win for us. We just know that there's more to push, and there's more to be able to be taken off of that. So I'm honestly super grateful for today."
