Video: Diamond League 400m – Kirani James v LaShawn Merritt


The amazing Kirani James adds to his list of accomplishments, beating rival LaShawn Merritt and setting a new 2013 world leading time (and Diamond League meet record) of 44.02 seconds. Merritt’s always had a deadly final 70m, but watch how James – still just 20 years old – effortlessly pulls away. The Dominican Republic’s young star Luguelin Santos (only 19) finishes third.
