In the final event at the 2024 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Team Trials, a world record was toppled.

Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone set a new women's 400m hurdles world record for an incredible fifth time, qualifying for her third Olympic Games. The defending Olympic champion finished the women's 400m hurdles final in 50.65 seconds to break the record she last set in 2022.

"I was not expecting that," McLaughlin-Levrone told Lewis Johnson of NBC Sports moments after finishing. "I'm just amazed, baffled and in shock."

Her time was so fast, in fact, that four of the nine runners in last week's 400m flat final were slower than McLaughlin-Levrone was with hurdles.

McLaughlin-Levrone advanced to Paris alongside Anna Cockrell and Jasmine Jones in the women's 400m hurdles. That final concluded the last night of the U.S. Trials, which also featured victories for Rai Benjamin, Nikki Hiltz and Grant Fisher, among others.

The night was historic for more than just McLaughlin-Levrone, as U.S. Trials records were set in all six track finals, plus one in the field courtesy of Maggie Malone-Hardin, who topped the women's javelin final.

Men's hammer final

Daniel Haugh launched a season's-best throw of 79.51m to earn his second Olympic berth.

The 29-year-old from Georgia topped the final and will headline the U.S. men's hammer team in Paris. Haugh placed 12th in first Olympic experience at the Tokyo Games.

Rudy Winkler, who earned silver in Tokyo, is headed to his third Olympics. Winkler also posted a season-best throw — 78.89m — to finish second and clinch his Olympic spot.

Justin Stafford placed third in the final at 77.07m and will need to qualify via World Athletics rankings, as he hasn't met the Olympic standard for Paris (78.20m).

Men's high jump final

Shelby McEwen shored up a spot at his second Olympic Games. McEwen was in peak form, leaping to a height of 2.30m to win the men's high jump final. The 28-year-old University of Alabama alum was just 3 centimeters below his lifetime best of 2.33m.

Caleb Snowden and Tyus Wilson placed second and third, respectively, but neither man has the Olympic standard, so their spots in Paris are up in the air for now.

JuVaughn Harrison, the reigining world silver medalist and a member of the Tokyo Olympic team, failed to clear 2.24m in three attempts and finished fourth. Based on rankings, Harrison may still secure an Olympic spot but will need to wait and see.

Men's 5000m final

Grant Fisher won his second Trials final to secure an Olympic double.

Fisher prevailed in an epic men's 5000m final, just nosing in front of Abdihamid Nur with a few steps to go. Fisher had already won the men's 10,000m final to become the first U.S. track and field athlete to qualify for Paris. Now, he'll add the 5000m to his schedule. His time of 13:08.85 was a U.S. Trials record.

Nur, meanwhile, is a first-time Olympian. The 25-year-old was born in Somalia as the second youngest of eight children before his mother took the family to Kenya, then to America. Nur was raised in Apple Valley, Minnesota, and is now a U.S. citizen. He'll now represent his nation at the Olympic Games.

Parker Wolfe of the University of North Carolina posted a personal-best time of 13:10.75 to finish third. He hasn't met the Olympic standard yet, so Wolfe will need to qualify for Paris via rankings.

Men's 800m final

Bryce Hoppel won the men's 800m final, setting a U.S. Trials record of 1 minute, 42.77 seconds. The masterful run also fell just shy of Donavan Brazier's American record of 1:42.34. With the win, Hoppel booked his spot at a second Olympic Games.

Hobbs Kessler, 21, finished second, meaning he's the first U.S. athlete since Rick Wohlhuter in 1976 to qualify for both the Olympic 800m and 1500m.

Brandon Miller crossed the line third and is Olympic-bound for the first time.

Women's 100m hurdles final

Masai Russell smashed a 24-year-old U.S. Trials record, winning the women's 100m hurdles final in 12.25 seconds to earn her first Olympic berth. Russell's dash was also the fastest time in the world this year.

Alaysha Johnson finished just behind Russell with a personal best of 12.31 seconds, qualifying for Paris alongside Grace Stark, who placed third just a step behind Johnson.

Notably, two former Olympic 100m hurdles medalists will miss out on the Paris Games. Nia Ali, 2016 silver medalist, finished fourth, trailing by just .06-seconds.Keni Harrison, 2020 silver medalist, also failed to qualify for these Olympics, finishing sixth.

Women's pole vault final

Bridget Williams cleared a height of 4.73m and booked her first Olympic spot with a win in the women's pole vault final. Williams is the 2023 Pan American Games champion and will next compete at her first Olympics.

Katie Moon placed second to secure her second Olympic berth, where she will defend her Olympic gold medal.

Moon won gold in Tokyo, then won gold at 2022 and 2023 Worlds, the latter of which was shared with Australia's Nina Kennedy. Moon's 2024 season has been dogged by Achilles tendinosis — which she called "painful and lingering" —  that kept her out of much of the winter slate, but Moon worked her way back to her typical strength in time for Trials. 

Brynn King finished third to join those two in Paris, which will be her first Olympics.

Women's 1500m final

Emily Mackay crossed the line just .57-seconds behind Hiltz to set her lifetime best and qualify for Paris. Elle St. Pierre finished third, which means she'll compete in the Olympic 1500m/5000m double. St. Pierre won the 5000m final earlier at Trials.

Men's triple jump final

Salif Mane set his personal best to win the men's triple jump final and become an Olympian for the first time. Mane will certainly be joined in Paris by Donald Scott, who placed third and has met the Olympic standard, and possibly by second place-finisher Russell Robinson.
