Hejnová completes unbeatable year in Zurich

Zuzana Hejnová won the 400m hurdles race at the IAAF Diamond League final race in Zurich on Thursday crossing the line at 53.32 seconds. Jamaica's Kaliese Spencer was second in 54.22 seconds and Denisa Rosolova also from the Czech Republic was third in 54.99 seconds. Hejnová thus completed a hugely successful year in which she won all of the 11 races she competed in, breaking the Czech record she had set three times in a row. The present Czech record for 400m hurdles with which she bagged the gold at the World Championships in Moscow is 52.83 seconds.
