William Carr (1995)
Bill Carr ran only three open 400 meter races in his life. He beat the world record holder and bettered the listed record each time. He won the gold medal in the 400 meters at the 1932 Olympic Games, and ran the anchor leg on the 1600 meter relay team that set a new world record.
The Pine Bluff native achieved all of this during his only full season of varsity competition while at the University of Pennsylvania.
