Flick back through the startlists for the women’s 400m hurdles at the 2016 Olympics and you could probably have a fair guess at which youngster might since have emerged as the leading contender for gold this summer, even if you’d spent the last five years in a coma. As far back as 2014, Sydney McLaughlin was announcing herself as a freakish talent with the potential to become the best on the planet, making her mark in athletics-mad Eugene as she claimed the first of many world-age-bests at the US Junior Championships.
