Janeene Vickers has excellent speed and is stronger than most women running the 400-meter hurdles. But in Saturday's finals of the USA/Mobil National Track and Field Championships, her role was clear. Sandra Farmer-Patrick, owner of the U.S. record (53.37 seconds), was the star, and if all went well, Vickers would push Farmer-Patrick down the stretch and finish a close second. That's what made Vickers' 54.

Sandra Farmer-Patrick shattered the U.S. record in the women's 400-meter hurdles, and her husband, David Patrick, won the men's 400 hurdles, completing a rare double in the Mobil / The Athletics Congress Outdoor Track and Field Championships Saturday night at the University of Houston. Farmer-Patrick, a Jamaican native who became a U.S. citizen last year, shortly before the U.S. Olympic trials, was timed in 53.75 seconds. That easily broke the U.S. record of 54.23 set by Judi Brown-King in 1987.

David Patrick said that the only better time he could remember having with his wife was their honeymoon. In the 20 months since, they have had to clear many hurdles. But never have they done that with quite so much at stake, or with so many people watching, as they did here Friday night, when both became World Cup track champions. Patrick ran his fastest time of the year, 48.74 seconds, in winning the men's 400-meter intermediate hurdles, the first event of the three-day meet.
