Michael McDonald (runner)
|Birth name||Michael L. McDonald|
17 March 1975 |
Saint Mary Parish, Jamaica
He competed for Jamaica at the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta, United States where he won the bronze medal in the men's 4 × 400 metres relay with his teammates Roxbert Martin, Greg Haughton and Davian Clarke.
Both at the 1997 World Championships in Athletics held in Athens, Greece, and at the 1999 World Championships in Athletics held in Sevilla, Spain, the Jamaica 4 × 400 team won originally the bronze medal, but the USA 4 × 400 team, which originally finished first in 4 × 400 m relay, was disqualified in 2008 due to Antonio Pettigrew confession of using human growth hormone and EPO between 1997 and 2003. Therefore, the silver medal was later awarded to the team from Jamaica.
