LT he weather remains good for Alexander Doom. After having managed, last summer, to go under 45 seconds for the first time over 400 m at the Budapest World Championships (44.92), after having been crowned indoor world champion over 400 m and 4 x 400 m in March at Glasgow and after qualifying with the Tornados for the Olympics during the World Relays in the Bahamas two weeks ago, the Roularien once again distinguished himself for his return to the 400m in the Diamond League, this Sunday, in Marrakech.
