McLaughlin-Levrone wants more at Paris 2024

Looking ahead to the Summer Olympics, the track and field star for Team USA said that she wants to perform at an even higher level in France than she did in Tokyo 2020.

“I just want to be better than I was in Tokyo,” McLaughlin-Levrone said. “Improve upon myself. I don’t know what event possibly I’ll be doing but just representing Team USA very well.”

The University of Kentucky product became the youngest United States Olympian to compete in track and field since 1972 when she participated in the Summer Games in 2016.

In the World Championships, McLaughlin-Levrone has won four medals, three Gold and one Silver. In 2019, she captured Silver in the 400m hurdles and Gold in the 4 x 400m relay. Three years later, McLaughlin-Levrone earned gold medals in the 4 x 400m relay and 400m hurdles.
