Meet 41 year old Antwon Dussett, Masters sprinter, from Peoria, Illinois. Dussett who is a Gulf War veteran started sprinting in 1994. He is a 400m 2000 Olympic trials qualifier, 400m 2017 World Indoors Masters Champion and a US record holder (ages 35-39) in the 200m.

He explains that outside of the track his competitors and him have developed a friendly community but on the track they are still just as competitive with each other as they were as younger athletes. Whether you are a veteran sprinter, beginner sprinter, or someone looking to get more active, Antwon’s story will inspire you!
