About Kerron
Kerron Clement is one of the most decorated 400-meter hurdlers of all-time. In 2009, Clement joined National Track & Field Hall of Famer Edwin Moses (1983, 1987) and Felix Sanchez of the Dominican Republic (2001, 2003) as the only men ever to win the world 400m hurdles title twice, with all three accomplishing the feat in consecutive meets. At the University of Florida, Clement shocked the track world when he ran 44.57 seconds to win the 2005 NCAA indoor 400-meter title, breaking Michael Johnson’s WR of 44.63, set in 1995. He also holds the NCAA meet record in the 400m hurdles (47.56). The 19-year-old sophomore then anchored Florida’s 4x400 meter relay to a collegiate record 3:03.51, previously. In addition to track, Clement is a model and actor and appeared in a music video for Beyonce. In 2007, at just 22 years of age, Clement was ranked No. 1 in the world by Track & Field News
