For the 1,600m relay in Berlin, the U.S. team managers decided to field a completely fresh team and not use the runners who had competed in the individual 400m. Thus Harold Cagle of Oklahoma Baptist, who had placed only sixth at the Final Trials, earned his Olympic selection. He ran the opening leg in the Olympic final in 48.7. Cagle graduated Oklahoma Baptist in 1939 and went on to teach and coach in Oklahoma. He is a member of the NAIA and the Oklahoma Baptist Athletic Halls of Fame.
Personal Best: 400 – 46.5 (1936).
