World Record Holder To Run at Clemson Invitational

April 3, 1998

CLEMSON, S.C. – Olympic gold medalist Donovan Bailey will be running at the Clemson Invitational with the rest of the professional 4x100m relay team.

Bailey set the world record in the 100m dash at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic games with a time of 9.84. He also ran on the Canadian 4x100m relay team that took gold by turning in a time of 38.23. Joining Bailey on that team was Clemson senior sprinter Carlton Chambers. Chambers is a five time All-American which ranks fifth in Clemson history. He is in fourth place in the school record books in the 100m dash with a time of 10.18w and also ran on the two relay teams, the 4x100m relay and sprint medley relay, that both hold the Clemson records.

Running on the professional relay team this weekend along with Bailey will be former Tiger athlete Michael Green. Green won two national championships in the 55m dash in back-to-back years of 1992 and 1993. He had a total of six All-American titles during his collegiate career and hold the school record in the 100m dash with a time of 10.01w.

With Green running the first leg, and Bailey on the second leg of the relay the third and fourth legs will be ran by Anthony Jones, who is an alum of the University of Illinois and is a Big Ten record holder in the 100m dash and Rod Tolbert, also a graduate of Illinois.
