Moment No. 6: All-Time-Great Aldrich Bailey Runs 45-Second 400m

In the 2012 Olympic year--a senior from Mansfield Timberview High School in Texas stole headlines as the hottest quarter-miler in town: Aldrich Bailey.

That year was a dream season for the future Texas A&M Aggie and now Texas Longhorn, who clocked his personal best of 45.19 to rank No. 6 all-time in prep history, competed at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials and earned a bronze medal at the IAAF World Junior Championships.

Aldrich ran under 46 seconds eight times that season, including a stunning 45.58 to set the meet record at the Golden South Invitational while rocking a blue Team USA kit.
