About a month after becoming an NCAA champion, Britton Wilson is a world champion.

The Arkansas sprinter won the gold medal at the World Championships in Eugene, Oregon, as the third leg of the United States’ 4×400-meter relay team. The group ran a time of 3:17.79.

The win came by nearly a three-second margin. Team Jamaica finished in silver with a time of 3:20.74. Great Brittain was third at 3:22.64.

Wilson’s individual time was the fastest of the four American sprinters. Her split was 49.39 seconds as part of the four-member team, all of whom are current or former SEC track stars. Sydney McLaughlin and Abby Steiner ran at Kentucky and Talitha Diggs is from Florida.

Wilson also won the NCAA Outdoor Championship in the 400-meter hurdles at the same track at the University of Oregon in June.
