Stephen Gardiner of the Bahamas won the gold with a score of 43.85, the silver went to Anthony Zamprano of Colombia (44.08) and the bronze went to Kirani James of Grenada (44.19).
Bonifacia was stranded in the semi-finals at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, but in Tokyo he outdone himself by qualifying for the final with a Dutch record of 44.62.
,,it was good. I felt fine. I was so happy to be here in an Olympic final. the last? Why should that be important? This only gives impetus to Paris (Olympic Games in 2024, ed.). That was the limit and it is what it is. Thanks for the replies, I read them all. I love Holland,” Bonifacia said afterwards in we.
“I’m just a monster, I love it”
Shortly thereafter, Bonevacia saw the stars before he had to sit down. “Have some water? I’m totally empty. 400m just running and dying. Why is that fun? I’m just a beast, I love it. Tomorrow is the relay. Yeah man, I have a busy schedule.”

Fimc Paul is in good condition. She already proved it with her bronze medal in the 400m hurdles at the Olympic Games in Tokyo and she also showed it in the 4x400m series. 21-year-old Amersforci led the team to the final on Saturday with an impressive final round. Paul recorded a split time of 49.14.
For comparison, her Dutch record is 50.37. Of course there is a flying start in the relay, but with 49.14 she was the fastest of all the runners in the 4×400 series. “It was great to compete at full power. I was allowed back in and I am strong,” she said after the race. “I went crazy, because I had to close a pit first. Our time was very good. We took 3 seconds off the previous Dutch record, which has been in place for six years. I don’t think we realize how hard it is to run just yet.”
Leakey Claver and sisters Lisan and Laura de Witt ran to the best of their ability, but were unable to join the leading teams. Paul started her tour in seventh place. It took fourth place. Holland’s timing was fifth overall, which led to a place in the final. Lisanne de Witte articulated the tactics of the four-way relay team well. “The more we go in the future, the more Fimki has to catch up. This is our team. There is definitely room for improvement, especially my substitution has been a mess, but we can be very satisfied.”
Claver and Paul have already completed the fifth 400m in Tokyo. “For the fifth time this has been very good. But if you train for two hours a day ten times a week, you should be able to do a competition five to six times. It’s also the only thing we work for,” says Claver.
