Dalilah Muhammad is an American track and field athlete who specialises in the 400 meters hurdles. A 2016 Rio Olympics champion, she won a gold medal at the 2019 World Championships, setting the former world record with a time of 52.16 seconds. Muhammad is only the second female 400m hurdler in history, after Sally Gunnell, to have won the Olympic, World titles and broken the world record.

Dalilah’s world record was intact until a month before the Tokyo Olympics 2020, where her compatriot Sydney McLaughlin became the first woman to break the 52-second barrier while rewriting the world record in 400m hurdles at the US Olympic Trials. Even though Dalilah is not a world record holder anymore, she is a firm favourite to defend the gold that she won five years ago. Moreover, she is also in the fray for a second gold at the upcoming quadrennial extravaganza as a part of the 4×400 relay team. So it becomes imperative to learn a lot more about Dalilah Muhammad, a great hurdler from US.

Dalilah was born and raised by her parents Nadirah and Askia Muhammad who are part of a Muslim American family. Born in Jamaica, Queens, Dalilah now resides in Bayside, Queens, New York.

The only woman who can stop the sojourn of Dalilah is her own compatriot and current 400m hurdles world record holder Sydney McLaughlin. So what is guaranteed is a 1-2 finish for the USA in women’s 400m hurdles, but it would be interesting to see if Dalilah successfully defends her crown or we get to see a new champion. Nevertheless, Dalilah would always be counted as one of the great hurdlers of all time.
