Women's 400m Hurdles

The 400m Hurdles are an Olympic track and field (athletics) discipline. On a standard outdoor track 400 meters is the length of the inside lane once around the stadium. Runners stay in their lane the entire way after starting out of the blocks and must clear ten hurdles that are evenly, for each lane, spaced around the track. The hurdles are positioned so that they fall forward if bumped into to prevent injury to the runners. Although fallen hurdles don't count against them, runners like to clear them clean as touching them during the race slows runners down.

History

The first awards in a 400m Hurdles race were given in 1860 when a race was held in Oxforn, England, over a course of 440 yards (approx. 402 meters). While running the course, participants had to clear 12 massive, more than 100cm tall, wooden hurdles that had been spaced in even intervals. 1860 is the leap year starting on Sunday. ... This article is about the unit of measure known as the yard. ...


To reduce the risk of injury, somewhat more lightweight constructions were introduced in 1895 that runners could push over. But until 1935 runners were disqualified if they pushed over more than 3 hurdles in a race and records were only officially accepted if the runner in question had cleared all hurdles clean and left them all standing. 1895 (MDCCCXCV) was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Thursday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar). ... 1935 (MCMXXXV) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will take you to calendar). ...


At the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris, France, the 400m Hurdles became an Olympic event. At the same time, the race was standardized so that virtually identical races could be held and the finish times compared to each other. As a result, the official distance was fixed to 400 meters, or once around the stadium, and the number of hurdles was reduced to 10. The official height of the hurdles was set to 91.44 cm (3 feet) for men and, since 1974, to 76.20 cm (2-1/2 feet) for women. The hurdles were now placed on the course with a runup to the first hurdle of 45 meters, a distance between the hurdles of 35 meters each, and a home stretch from the last hurdle to the goal line of 40 meters. The 1900 Summer Olympics, formally known as the Games of the II Olympiad, were held in 1900 in Paris, France. ...
