16-year-old Quincy Wilson breaks through to make men's 400m final at Olympic trials

16-year-old quincy wilson breaks through to make men's 400m final at olympic trials

EUGENE − At 16 years old, Quincy Wilson is running against adults nearly twice his age at the Olympic trials. But the massive age and experience gap doesn't seem to faze him.

Wilson broke his own under-18 world 400-meter record in the semifinal Sunday by crossing the line in a personal-best time of 44.59 seconds.

Wilson, who attends Bullis School in Maryland, finished behind Bryce Deadmon (44.44) and Vernon Norwood (44.50), but his time was good enough to advance to the final.

"Today I just came out here, gave everything I had. I knew the last 100 was going to be hard,” Wilson told NBC. “I'm competing with them. I'm just thankful to be in this moment."

The men's 400 final is Monday at 9:59 p.m. ET on NBC.
