Shaunae Miller-Uibo said she was surprised by her world record run at last Saturday’s Millrose games in New York.
Miller-Uibo, the Olympic Games 400m champion, equaled Russian Irina Privalova’s 25-year-old world record of 35.45 seconds to win the women’s 300m.
“I was surprised by the time. After the race I saw the clock still going but when the announcer said the time, I was excited of my accomplishments,” she was quoted as saying at The the Nassau Guardian.
She continued: “I think the race went well overall. It was my first competition of the year and I had a great field of ladies to run with, and to be able to get a great performance out of that was a plus for me.”
Miller-Uibo now holds two world records. She set a new world mark in the women’s 200m straight at the Adidas Boost Boston Games, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, last year.
