Jeremy Wariner of Arlington was a three-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time world champion in the 400 meters and 4x400 relay, and was ranked No. 1 in the world at the distance for five years (2004-07, 2010), a mark surpassed only by fellow Baylor alum and 1997 TSHOF inductee Michael Johnson. As a BU sophomore, he won the NCAA indoor and outdoor titles in the 400 meters, followed by the USATF championship and a gold medal at the Athens Olympics in 44 seconds flat, shattering Johnson's school record. He turned pro after two years, four NCAA titles, and seven All-America designations, but continued to train at BU with coach and TSHOF inductee Clyde Hart. Wariner went on to win a gold medal in the 4x400 at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and silver in the 400, as well as 400-meter gold medals in the 2005 and '07 World Championships. His personal-best 43.45 in the latter makes him the third-fastest man ever behind Johnson (43.18) and Butch Reynolds (43.29), and through 2014 remained the fastest time in the world since Johnson set the mark in 1999. Wariner began his career at Arlington Lamar, where he was the Class 5A state champion in the 200 and 400 meters in 2002.
