Ordinary is what we expect.
Yet extraordinary is happening constantly.
Yesterday was a special moment for South Africa and for the 400 meter race at the 2015 Track & Field World Championships in Beijing’s Birdnest stadium (home of the 2008 Olympic Games).
Never before have three runners in the same heat broken the 44-second barrier.
The winner ran the 4th fastest 400 meters ever, in the history of Track & Feld.
Michael Johnson holds the world record (since 1999) at 43.18.
