Biography

While at UCLA, Jimmy LuValle proved himself to be a great furlong runner. In 1934 he ran 20.8 for 220y on a straightaway and Bob Kiesel and Foy Draper were the only sprinters in the world to match LuValle's time that year. In 1935, LuValle moved up to the quarter-mile and took the NCAA 440y in 47.7. In the Olympic year he brought his best 440 y time down to 47.1 at the Princeton Invitational and two weeks later he won the 400 m at the Western Olympic Trials in 46.3, which would remain the best mark of his career.

Personal Best: 400 – 46.3 (1936).
