Francena Mcorory 062814TeamUSA.org PhotoSACRAMENTO, California — The accolades for Francena McCorory continued from indoors to outdoors as her USATF Outdoor Championships finish in the BMW 400 meters not only earned her a title, but also ranked among the top-five all-time American performances.

The BMW women’s 400m came down to the last 100 as reigning World Indoor champion McCorory (Hampton, Virginia) added a USATF Outdoors title to her belt. McCorory and Sanya Richards-Ross (Austin, Texas) moved ahead of the pack after the final curve before McCorory kicked in an extra gear for a close finish in 49.48, a mark that makes her the fifth-fastest American woman ever. Richards-Ross, the American record holder, had a season-best 49.66 in second.
