    Courtney Okolo smashed her previous 50.03 women's collegiate 400m record with a blazing 49.71 at Louisiana State's Alumni Gold meet.

    Her new personal best ranks second in the world this year behind Shaunae Miller's 49.69.



    "I wanted to run that fast," Okolo said.

    "We've been talking about it and training has been looking like I could run that fast so it was just about executing.

    I was relieved.

    I put a lot of pressure on myself to execute my race right.

    And, according to Okolo, she might be able to run faster.

    "Definitely.

    Oh yea," she said with a smile after being asked if there is room to improve.

    "The last 100, it was rough."
