Athlete Trey Hardee

James Edward Hardee III is an American track and field athlete who specializes in the decathlon. He is a former NCAA Champion, a two-time World Outdoor Champion, a member of the United States 2008 etc. 

His 2012 season was one of adversity, coming back as he was after surgery.   He rebounded strong to win silver in London. Combined with the gold medal from world record holder Ashton Eaton, it was the first time Americans had finished 1-2 in the event at the Olympics since 1956.

A two-time World Outdoor gold medalist, Trey Hardee's personal best of 8,790, which he set in Berlin in 2009, currently ranks behind just Ashton Eaton, Dan O' Brien and Bryan Clay in the event in American history. It was also the highest decathlon score at a World Championships since 2001. Hardee joins O'Brien (1991, 1993, 1995), Tom Pappas (2003) and Clay (2005) as the only Americans ever to win the world decathlon title.

As a senior at the University of Texas, Hardee was ranked second in the country after establishing a new NCAA record at the Texas Relays in 2006 of 8,465 points. Hardee also held the NCAA Indoor heptathlon record of 6,136 before it was beaten by Ashton Eaton in 2010. Hardee also owns the Mississippi State University school decathlon record of 8,041. In 2008 he fielded inquiries to try out for the NY Jets saying, "I guess I am the mold for what they're looking for – tall, fast and I can catch a ball."
