A 43 flat is approximately comparable to a 60 or 61 second 400 hurdle time. I ran a 39 300 and my fastest 400 time was 55. That last 100 in a 400 hurdles really really hurts.
Michael Johnson 43.84
I'm a sophomore and I am ranked #1 in my section, my PR is a 65.4, which is pretty good.
His fastest time in the 400m was in Kingston in 2007, running it in 45.28s!!
To train for the 400m dash you have to spend time on running long distances, and practise sprinting. because the 400m dsh is a bit if sprint, yet a bit of long distance. you will need to train for many years to win in the olympics. Probably about 10 or 15 years.
Yes when an eleven year old girl can do dash time in 78 seconds of 400m it is good timing. It really just depends on the health of the person and how good they are at doing it.
