Alison dos Santos does not stop winning expressive results in her career. The 21-year-old Brazilian, a bronze medalist at the Tokyo Games, started the Diamond League season by climbing to the top of the podium in Doha, Qatar with the best time of the year in the 400m hurdles and meeting record.
The Brazilian athlete finished the race with 47s24, a mark not yet achieved in the year and his second best finish behind only 46s72 of Olympic bronze triumph. Time ranks 31st in history among all competitors.
This time Alison dos Santos finished better than American Rai Benjamin, silver in Tokyo and then second, this time behind Brazil with 47.49 points. Irishman Thomas Barr won the bronze medal with 49.67.
Brazil took the lead in the world rankings in 2022 by winning its second race of the season. He had already won the gold medal in the United States in Ohio with a time of 48.41. It is worth remembering that the world record holder of the event, Norwegian Karsten Warholm (45s94), did not go to Doha.
The 21-year-old PU from So Paulo, as he is affectionately called, returns in May to compete in the second tier of the still Diamond League. The race will take place on the 28th in Eugene, Oregon, United States. Apart from already looking for better points for Paris-2024, Brazil is also looking to come strong in the World Cup, which also takes place in Oregon between June 15 and 24.
