Francena McCorory, a Bethel High and Hampton University grad, registered a 49.86-second performance in her semifinal section of the women’s 400-meter race Sunday at the track and field world championships.

Here’s a video of her performance.

Not only did she win, but the run was the fastest of her life, superseding the 49.96 she ran earlier this season at the Herculis Meet at Monaco. McCorory, 24, earned an Olympic gold medal in the 4×400 relay at the 2012 London Games.
