Jeremy Wariner wins at Texas State Invitational

American 2004 Athens Olympic Games champion Jeremy Wariner won the men’s 400-metres dash at the Texas State Invitational on Saturday.

Wariner, who is using the early meetings as tune up for the U.S. Olympic trials later this year, clocked 45.64 seconds in a dominating performance to win the event on the day.

The former Baylor star, running his first individual 400 of the season, was however, not happy with the performance as he was hoping for a better time.

“I was a little disappointed with today’s race,” he said, as quoted in the “It wasn’t what I was expecting.”

He did point out though that:”I can’t be too disappointed, but in my mind and my gut I knew I could have run faster.

“But it’s just practice today.”

Wariner believes things are coming together for him – believing that if he can put his phases together he will have a very good race.

“My last 100 meters last week was great,” he said. “If I can just add that on to today’s [Saturday] race I would have went 44 seconds.”
