46.78 - The Kevin Young Documentary

Producer: JB   |  English    

Kevin C. Young was the winner of the 400 hurdles at the 1992 Summer Olympics where he set a world record and Olympic record of 46.78 secs, which remains unbeaten, and the first time 47 seconds was broken.

He became the 400m hurdles world champion the following year, winning at the 1993 World Championships in Athletics with a time of 47.18 seconds.

 

He had an unusual hurdling technique of switching between 12 and 13 strides between the hurdles, departing from the 13-stride technique popularized by Edwin Moses.[2]
