Three-time Olympic champion Jeremy Wariner and reigning world indoor shot put champion Ryan Whiting won landmark titles on Sunday at the US Indoor Track and Field Championships.
Athens Olympic 400-meter winner Wariner, a five-time world champion and two-time Olympic relay title-holder competing in the US Indoors for the first time, won the 400 in 45.82 seconds, .72 ahead of runner-up Marcus Boyd.
Wariner's chief rival, Bershawn Jackson, failed to finish the race. He was the 2005 world champion and third in the 400 hurdles at the 2008 Olympics.
