Torrin Lawrence dies in crash

Torrin Lawrence

The IAAF is deeply saddened to learn that US 400m runner Torrin Lawrence died in a car crash on Monday (28) at the age of 25.

Born in April 1989, Lawrence ran for the University of Georgia. During his time there, he won the 2010 NCAA indoor 400m title.

That indoor season, he held the three-fastest times in the world, and the quickest of those, 45.03, puts him equal sixth on the world indoor all-time list.

More recently he was part of the US 4x400m squad which took gold at the IAAF World Relays in Nassau. In his last ever race earlier this month, he set an outdoor PB of 45.32 when winning in Kortrijk.

He died after a truck collided with his car near Cordele in Georgia.
