Quentin Wheeler

Quentin David Wheeler (born April 27, 1955 in Long Branch, New Jersey) is an American track and field athlete. He had the misfortune to be one of the best 400 meter hurdlers in the world at the same time as Edwin Moses was invincible in the event. Wheeler ran in the 1976 Olympics, finishing fourth behind Moses at his debut on the international scene.[1] Only Yevgeny Gavrilenko kept the United States from sweeping the event that year.

Less than two months before the Olympics, it was Wheeler running for San Diego State University who was the NCAA Champion. Wheeler set his personal record of 48.39 at the 1979 Mt. SAC Relays.

Wheeler attended Monmouth Regional High School, where he was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in 1993.[2]
