About Omar
Craddock is the latest in a long list of standout triple jumpers -- most notably Olympians Will Claye and Christian Taylor -- trained by coach Mike Holloway at the University of Florida. His stellar 2013 season, which included his second NCAA Outdoor title, culminated with a triple jump victory in Des Moines at the USA Outdoor Championships. Craddock grabbed a spot on Team USA for the World Outdoor Championships after winning a bronze medal in 2010 at the World Junior Championships.
