Meet the Newest American Record Holder from Indiana

Noah Malone, a 2020 Hamilton Southeastern grad and current sprinter for Indiana State University, ran a new American Record in the T12 400-meter dash.

Malone ran a 49.38 at the US Paralympic Trials on Saturday in Minneapolis.

This time breaks the previous record by just about 0.7 seconds and is the 19-year-old's first recorded open 400 time in competition. 

On Friday, Malone ran the 100-meter dash solo in a time of 10.74, hitting the para standard. He has now qualified himself for two individuals events for the Tokyo Paralympic Games later this August.

He will wait for the official team announcement on June 24th to confirm his spot. 

This will be the third time Malone has earned the opportunity to represent the USA in an international competition. In 2019 he competed at both the Pan Am Games and the World Para Junior Championships.
