Jeremy Wariner is a track star from Texas who competes for the United States in international competition, including the Olympics.
Wariner, born in 1984, was an accomplished athlete in high school, winning several state championships before enrolling at Baylor University. After his sophomore year, Wariner ran in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and won two gold medals, one in the 400 meter dash and the other in the 4x400 meter relay. Before competing in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Warnier decided to make a strategic change and fired his longtime coach in January. While there is no way of truly knowing if keeping the same coach would have made for a different result in China, Wariner did not win the gold in both events, netting a gold and a silver, the latter being in the solo race.
Outside of running professionally, Jeremy Wariner volunteers as a running coach at his college alma mater.
