Dalilah Muhammad has been named the 2019 USATF Jackie Joyner-Kersee Award winner

Dalilah set two world records in 2019. First she broke a record in the 400m Hurdles (52.20) that had stood since Russia’s Yuliya Pechonkina ran 52.34 back in 2003 at the World's in Paris, France.

It was the first time the 400m hurdles record had been set on US soil by a women. Dalilah doubled up on her world record with a 52.16 at the 2019 World Championships over the summer.

It was quite a year for the New York City native and at 29 looks primed to make a run at the gold medal in the up coming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo Japan.
