41: Walter Dix

At Coral Springs High, Dix set the Florida high-school record in the 200 meters. That started a sprinting career that included three indoor and six outdoor NCAA race titles while at Florida State and was highlighted by bronze medals in the 100 and 200 meter races at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.Mike Stocker / Sun Sentinel
