Norman’s sophomore year ended in record fashion on Saturday, first setting meet, Hayward Field and collegiate records in the 400-meter run with a time of 43.61 seconds. He then ran anchor on the Trojans’ 4×400-meter relay team which clocked an NCAA-record 2 minutes, 59 seconds.
Earlier in 2018, Norman helped USC win the indoor 4×400 title and set the world indoor record in the 400.
