World champion Steven Gardiner beat Michael Norman and company to win the men’s 400m at the Istvan Gyulai Memorial – a World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting – in Szekesfehervar on Tuesday (6 July).

It was Gardiner’s fourth 400m victory in Szekesfehervar, though he was made to work for it. USA’s Bryce Deadmon came off the final turn with the slight advantage, but Gardiner gritted his teeth and clawed back the deficit on the home straight, winning in 44.47 to Deadmon’s 44.58.

US Trials winner Michael Norman couldn’t quite get on level terms with the leading duo, while Olympic champion Wayde van Niekerk was a late withdrawal from the race.
