          Bro. Ninjas acting like Benjamin ain't under the tutelage of some the best quartermiler and hurdle coaches of all time.

        It’s sad how the men’s hurdles 400m is faster than the women’s regular 400m😂

              @neosapiens We've already seen Samba win 12 of 12 races, 2017 to the present. We see Samba just now beat Benjamin by a half a second. Results... nobody cares about your wishful thinking. Lol!

              @Anthony Watkins

              LOL we will see. Their PBs are virtually identical. Rai hadn't done a 400mH in over a year.

              J Gray. No, he won't. Samba owns Benjamin.

              Amazing that now they give the exact speed of every runner at every Milli-second of the race! Are we getting too technical and more than we need to know in track and field? @Tae Djair

              All these guys trying to imitate Bolt after they win look stupid ....... Just win the race and congratulate the other finishers and act like you been there before ......... Bolt was Bolt- stop trying to act like him it just looks stupid ........

                LMAO Carl lewis was the inspiration for everything, Donovan Bailey, all those old sprinters were the first to be like that. Bolt copies, chill out he's retired no need to keep riding him.

                Bolt was boring. Like an ugly tree running.

                  NBC, there has to be a better way to make your video titles to sound interesting other than spoiling the entire race!

                  Great race. Congrats to Samba. Benjamin seemed a bit awkward clearing the hurdles, especially down the final 100, but you know he will get that ironed out. Looking forward to this rivalry!

                    @Reggie Hampton He's run a lot more 400H than this one. It was his first _in a year_ and the rust showed, but I understand what you meant.

                    This was his first 400 hurdles race so he will get back on pace.
