Allyson Felix took a surprise victory in the women’s 400 metres at the US Athletics Track and Field Championships in Oregon yesterday. This year’s world leader Francene McCorory missed out of the World Championships after fading into fourth.

The United States Athletics Track and Field Championships continued in Eugene, Oregon with only the first three in each final, qualifying for the World Championships in Beijing in August.

Jenna Prandini showed no hangover from her disappointment in Friday’s 100 metres final as she ran a personal best of 22.18 seconds in the heats of the 200 metres. Shamier Little was the fastest qualifier in the 400 metres hurdles in 54.14 seconds.

There was another surprise in the men’s 400 metres as David Verburg edged out defending world champion LaShawn Merritt to take his first national title in 44.63 seconds.
