Fred Kerley rose to prominence after winning three medals for Team USA in the 2020 Olympics. He won a gold medal in the 4x400m relay, a silver medal in the 100m, and a bronze in the 400m.
“All I was thinking about was ‘gold medal’,” he said. “That was my expectation. I accomplished something but silver is not all right – I wanted gold."
Fred Kerley bounced back a few weeks later, winning two gold titles in the Diamond League, in the 400m and 100m. The Fan Arch athlete even put himself in the record books, becoming only the third man in history to run under 10 seconds for 100m, under 20 seconds for 200m, and under 44 seconds for 400m. He joins Wayde van Niekerk and Michael Norman.
