Track and Field’s newest star will compete at the 96th Drake Relays. Jeremy Wariner burst onto the scene last year by leading an American sweep in the 400 meters at the Olympic games in Athens and added a second gold medal in the four by 400 relay as just a 20-year-old. He will compete in the special invitational 400 at Drake and says he is running better than at the same point last season. He says his turnover is a lot faster than what it was and he says his footspeed is faster.Wariner is still enrolled at Baylor but gave up his college career after the Olympics and Relays director Mark Kostek is thrilled to have him back.
