Arman Hall was the only athlete in the round to break 47-seconds in the 400. He ran a 46.76 to win heat five and advance to the semis. “I am relieved. When I came in, I was a nervous wreck, and I’m so glad I made it to finals. I want to prove to myself that I’m the best 400m runner in the world," Arman said.
Defending Youth Olympics champion Robin Reynolds was able to take it easy in the fourth heat, cruising to a 54.59 to advance to the semi-final round. She had this to say: “I didn’t want to come into the first round and exert too much energy. I was glad that I could coast to the finish and advance.”
