    1. John Muir High School. From Wikipedia…” McCullough attended John Muir High School in Pasadena, California where he was one of the top sprinters in the state. Along with Obea Moore, he led his team to a CIF State title in the 4×100 relay and was favored to win the state title in the sprint events when he pulled up in the 100 final.[3][4] His team still holds the meet record at the prestigious Arcadia Invitational.”

  1. He could run and run fast. I’m sorry he got into a car accident. Those are not fun, no matter how minor they are. God’s speed on healing 100%.

    1. Fantastic to hear Sultan is expected to walk again; I recall the early reports on his condition were not so optimistic. And it is great that his former teammates are supporting him.

      1. I once read that Sultan ran a 10.03 100M. That won’t win a final, but it will place you in one.


    1. Saladin McCullough.

  2. The guy could have killed someone by acting stupid and people feel sorry for him?

    WTF? There’s a pandemic of idiocy running rampant in this forum.

    From PasadenaNow

    McCullough was allegedly racing another vehicle just south of Duarte Road when he lost control of his vehicle and hit the SUV, which was not involved in the race.

    The driver of the SUV was able to avoid a head-on collision when he saw the Mustang coming at him. McCullough was thrown from his vehicle.

    McCullough and the driver of the SUV were both hospitalized. According to KTLA 5, which did not identify him by name, the driver of the Mustang was transported with “life-threatening injuries” and has undergone several surgeries.
