Video: Gardner digs deep for 400 meter victory at Oregon Preview

EUGENE, Ore. -- A failed exchanged in the women's 4x100 meter relay didn't ruin English Gardner's day, as she won the women's 400 meter in 54.31 seconds at the Oregon Preview.

Early in the day, Gardner failed to pass the baton in the women's 4x100 meter relay and the Oregon team was knocked out.

Despite some poor weather conditions, Gardner came back later in the day and win the 400 meter.

"I always say there's nothing better than a little liquid sunshine here at Hayward," said Gardner. "Nothing bothers us, we're the Ducks, we love the water. It was definitely a good experience. I missed Hayward. I missed running here and I missed the fans. It's good to be home and having fun."
