TULSA, Okla. – Head Coach Alick Musukuma has announced the addition of Andretti Bain to the track and field/cross country staff as an assistant coach. In his role with the Golden Eagles, Bain’s main responsibilities include recruiting and evaluating talent.
“We are proud to have Andretti Bain be a part of the track and field/cross country programs,” said Musukuma. “We are rebuilding the programs and need someone like Andretti to be on board. Andretti has done amazing things for ORU as he is the only track and field athlete to win an NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championship and an Olympic silver medal in the same year, 2008. This will inspire other alumni to see that the ORU track and field/cross country programs are going to be great.”
A 2014 ORU Hall of Fame inductee, Bain is the most decorated track athlete in program history. Bain claimed the program’s first national championship, winning the 400 meter dash at the 2008 NCAA Indoor Championships. Later that year, Bain captured the title in the same event at the 2008 NCAA Outdoor Championships. During his career at ORU, Bain was a three-time All-American, 11-time conference champion and a nine-time Summit League Athlete of the Week.
After his career with the Golden Eagles, Bain went on to win a silver medal as a member of the Bahamas 4×400 meter relay team in the 2008 Olympics.
