This is also marking the fourth time in 13 months that the 22-year-old athlete set a new 400-meter hurdles world record.

She continued: "These past few days getting ready for this race, Hebrews 4:16 has been on my mind - coming boldly to his throne to receive mercy and grace and I think he really gave me the strength to do it today, so all the glory goes to God."

McLaughlin is an outspoken Christian and has touted her faith throughout her career, including in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where she won gold in the women's 400-meter hurdles.

After winning her gold, she said that it's all about "just trusting the process and giving the glory to God."
