Rio 2016 Olympics: Photo Highlights & Results Of The Men’s 400m Hurdles Final

The Men’s 400m Hurdles Final started with great disappointment as a false start caused a likely medalist to miss his Olympic dream, at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Javier Culson of Puerto Rico, left the field in tears,  his dream shattered. After a day of dashed dreams, the race finally got underway.

Jamaica’s Annsert Whyte looked easy and comfortable getting around the field. He managed to come off all the hurdles with no mishaps, however he was overtaken in the last five meters and had to settle for fifth place. The gold medal went to Kerron Clement who ran a beautifully executed race and now can celebrate, having won the Olympic and World Championship titles. Boniface Mucheru of Kenya took second place.
