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 Star-telegram.com. “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.”
