Congratulations to George Ranch Longhorn Champion Allison, who was a part of the gold medal-winning USA 4x400m relay team at the International Association of Athletics Federations Under 20 World Championships in Poland.

The USA won an eighth successive 4x400m relay title after a thrilling homestretch battle with Botswana to drop the curtain on the IAAF World U20 Championships Bydgoszcz 2016.

The quartet of Allison, Ari Cogdell, Kahmari Montgomery and Will London out-dueled the Botswana squad 3:02.39 to 3:02.81. The time is the fastest U20 performance of the year.

Allison ran the first leg, handing off the baton after giving the USA the early lead. His lap was clocked at 45.44.

Allison, the reigning state champ in the 400-meter dash, also represented his country this summer at a track meet in Cuba.
