Personal information
Born September 7, 1982

Kelly Willie (born September 7, 1982) is an American former track and field athlete who specialized in the 400 metres.

He ran for the American 4 x 400 metres relay team at the 2004 Olympics, but only in the qualifying heats as Otis Harris and Jeremy Wariner were rested to be fully fit for the final.

With strong American 400 metre runners like Andrew Rock, Derrick Brew, Darold Williamson and Wariner (who constituted the gold-winning relay team at the 2005 World Championships), and even LaShawn Merritt, Jamel Ashley and Terry Gatson, Willie has faced extremely tough competition in terms of qualifying for major international events where only three participants from each state are allowed.

Willie ran track collegiately at Louisiana State University.
