Quenera Hayes wins the women’s 400 meters in 49.78, and Wadeline Jonathas finishes third.

“I am proud of making it to this moment,” Felix said after the race. “There has been so much that has gone into this, and there were many times where I didn’t think I would get to this moment.”Running from lane 8, Felix almost immediately made up the stagger on Kaylin Whitney in lane 9. Hayes, in lane 6, and Jonathas, in lane 5, responded, and were ahead of Felix coming through the final turn.

As they straightened out into the final 100 meters, Hayes was clearly in control. Felix had not run a strong second turn, and her chances of finishing in the top three looked shaky. But the veteran remained calm and held her form, as the women who had run more aggressively in the third 100 meters faltered a bit, and she just eased past Jonathas at the line.

“I told myself before the race that when it comes down to it, I have to fight,” Felix said. “That’s been a theme of mine for the past couple years. I was just gonna give my all and leave it all on the track.”The opening round of the women’s 400 at the Tokyo Games is scheduled for Tuesday, August 3. headtopics.com

Lochte flops: Olympic career likely over after 7th in 200 IMAfter beating only one other swimmer, Ryan Lochte was the last one to climb from the pool. After embarrassing himself five years ago in Rio de Janeiro, Lochte's bid for a fifth Olympics ended with a labored, seventh-place finish in the 200 IM at the U.S. swimming trials Friday night. Chase Kalisz, who already had won the 400 individual medley at these trials, claimed another Olympic event by finishing next in 1:56.97.
