Renny finished third in 400 meters with a time of 45.02 seconds
BERLIN - Renny Quow , a former NJCAA 400 meter dash champion
when competing for the SPC Texans, competed with the best the world had to
offer today and will be leaving Germany with a bronze medal after finishing
third in the 400 meter dash at the IAAF World Track and Field championships.
Quow appeared to lag behind the field 200 meters into the
race, and although he appeared to start picking his competitors off, he still
had a lot of ground to make up with 100 meters to go. With a strong finish, and an obviously
fatigued Chris Brown of the Bahamas faltering over the final 30 meters, Quow
was able to capture the bronze medal with a time of 45.02 seconds behind
Lashawn Merritt and Jeremy Wariner, both of the United States and both winners
of the last two Olympic games in the event, Merritt in Beijing (2008), and
Wariner in Athens (2004).
South Plains College will again have representation on the
track when former Texan Latoy Williams lines up to compete in the preliminary
round of the men's 4x400 meter relay for his native country Bahamas. The Bahamian squad will be in lane three of
the second section, scheduled for 11:55 a.m.
