Quanera Hayes Sets 300m American Record, HS Senior Candace Hill Runs 36.84

At a collegiate meet at Clemson University, professionals Quanera Hayes and Candace Hill ran 300 meters ridiculously fast. Hayes ran 35.71 to break Natasha Hastings's American record, and while Track & Field News and USATF do not list a U.S. junior indoor record for the 300m, Hill's 36.86 is faster than the standing high school record for the event. (Hill, who turns 18 in February and turned pro at the end of 2015, is a high school senior.)

According to T&FN, Hayes's mark is the third fastest in world history. It's the second straight year that the American record in the event has gone down after Hastings broke Allyson Felix's mark last year. Today was the first meet on Clemson's newly banked track.

Hayes excelled indoors last year as well, winning an indoor national title and a world indoor bronze medal in the 400 meters as well as a 4x400m gold at world indoors. She was eighth in the 400m final at the Olympic Trials.
