Fastest for nearly 50 years

Amber Anning ran the fastest ever 400 metres by a Sussex woman when winning her seeded race indoors in Vienna on Saturday.

Her time of 53.35s was well over a second faster than the second girl and was the fastest by any British U20 woman this century. In fact not since Marilyn Neufville clocked 53.01s indoors in 1979 has anyone run faster.

All the races were seeded at this large Viennese meeting and the Sussex runner was actually seeded 14th but in her race she outstripped the opposition from the outside lane and lifted her seeding to sixth.
