Coral Springs High School grad seeks return to Olympics

Walter Dix is gunning for gold this summer.

After a standout performance in the recent University of Miami Hurricanes Alumni Invitational Track and Field Meet, it appears that the 30-year-old Dix could be on the fast track to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August.

Dix, a 2004 graduate of Coral Springs High School, captured the 100-meter dash in what he described as a surprisingly quick time of just over 10 seconds. His 200-meter time of 20.25 also exceeded his expectations.

“The 10.03 (in the 100) was my second run this season, so it was pretty fast [for so early] in the year,” said Dix, who captured two bronze medals in the 2008 Olympic Games – 100-meter (9.91) and 200-meter (19.98). “The time in the 200 in Miami really shocked me.”
