    Unfortunately, it's not going to be ratified.

    "....will not be ratified as a world record due to an issue with the starting blocks, US officials said on Tuesday.

    The United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) made the announcement in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

    Initially, Morales Williams' time was believed to have broken the previous world mark, but the world record will remain the 44.52 set by American sprinter Michael Norman in March 2018.

    Reports in the US on Tuesday said the starting blocks used in the race did not comply with World Athletics regulations governing the ratification of world records.

    According to the rulebook, blocks must be linked to a World Athletics "start information system" which monitors reaction times."

    Shame on SEC meet officials and USTF. ALL collegiate competitions should be using the required equipment that complies with World Athletics.
