LONDON - American Kori Carter pulled off another of the numerous shocks at the world championships on Thursday, achieving the rare feat of winning the 400 meters hurdles title from the outside lane.

All eyes had been on Carter's US teammate, Olympic champion Dalilah Muhammad, who had been the strong favorite, but it was the former American champion in lane nine who maintained her form best to race to victory in 53.07 seconds.

Muhammad, the fastest woman in the world this year, earned silver in 53.50 to complete an American one-two while Jamaican Ristananna Tracey, an Olympic finalist last year, took bronze in a lifetime-best 53.74.
