Jeremy Wariner Added To Olympic Team

INDIANAPOLIS (July 3, 2012) -- Former Baylor track standout Jeremy Wariner was named to the USA Olympic squad on Tuesday. The 2004 Olympic gold medalist goes as part of the relay pool. Wariner didn't qualify for a spot in the 400 at U.S. track trials, finishing 6th in the 400 finals in Eugene, Oregon.

Jeneba Tarmoh has made the U.S. track and field team for the London Olympics, joining Allyson Felix, Tyson Gay and Justin Gatlin on the 127-athlete roster.

Tarmoh was selected as a member of the relay pool after withdrawing from a runoff Monday for the final Olympic spot in the 100 meters. She conceded her position rather than meet Felix at the starting line to break a third-place tie.

The roster also includes four reigning Olympic champions: Lashawn Merritt (400), Angelo Taylor (400 hurdles), Dawn Harper (100 hurdles) and Stephanie Brown-Trafton (discus). It also includes 19 American record holders.
