REPORT: American quartet smashes world record for distance medley relay in Eugene

Brandon Miller, Henry Wynne, Isaiah Harris, and Brannon Kidder set a new world record in the distance medley relay at the Oregon Relays in Eugene, USA on Friday (19). The team ran a time of 9:14.58*, surpassing the previous record of 9:15.50 set by USA’s Kyle Merber, Brycen Spratling, Brandon Johnson, and Ben Blankenship at the 2015 World Athletics Relays in The Bahamas.

The distance medley relay consists of four legs: 1200m, 400m, 800m, and 1600m. Kidder began the race with a time of 2:49.60 for his 1200m leg before passing the baton to Miller who ran 46.60 for the next leg. Harris then took over and ran an impressive time of 1:45.75 for his 800m leg before passing it on to Wynne who completed the final leg with a time of 3:52.64.

Their collective effort resulted in a new world record that will undergo the standard ratification process before being officially confirmed as a new world record at the upcoming World Athletics Relays in Nassau on May 4-5th.
