• Striding toward history

    070831_wariner_vmed_8arp350×350.jpgFormer Baylor sprinter and two-time Olympic gold medalist set a personal mark of 43.45 in the 400 meters en route to another gold medal at the 2007 IAAF World Athletics Championships in Osaka, Japan.

    Wariner, who is also a volunteer coach for Baylor Track, posted the fifth fastest quarter in history. Only two humans have ever run faster, and one of them is former Bear Michael Johnson, who holds the world record of 43.18.

    Collectively, Baylor runners have run 15 out of the 18 fastest quarter mile races in history! Jeremy has three of those, and Michael has 12. Watch out Michael: Jeremy is just hitting his stride!

    Sic ’em, Jeremy, and sic ’em to Coach Harbour, Coach Hart and others from the Baylor family who help mold Baylor’s incredible athletes. Thanks for your years of hard work in making Baylor world renowned as Quarter Mile U!
