NASSAU, Bahamas – Jeremy Wariner says he was encouraged by his performance at the Chris Brown Invitational this week and expects to run faster soon.

Wariner, the 2005 and 2007 IAAF World Championships 400m champion and 2004 Olympic Games gold medallist, clocked a season’s best of 45.55 seconds to take third in his heat and fourth overall behind fellow Grenadian Kirani James, who ran a world-leading 44.36 for victory.

The 32-year-old American was bettering the 45.70 he ran in Waco earlier this month, and he revealed that he was satisfied with the outing.

“I’ll take that race. 45.5 SB,” Wariner tweeted. “Felt great. Work in progress, but I’ll be in 44s soon.”

Warner, who has five World Championships titles and three Olympic Games golds, overall, has a personal best of 43.45 seconds, which is the third-fastest on the all-time list behind Michael Johnson’s world record mark of 43.18.

The American star said he enjoyed his time in the Caribbean and thanked the organizers of the Chris Brown Invitational for having him this year.

He also revealed that his next scheduled meeting will be the Michael Johnson Classic next weekend at Baylor University.
