An American sprinter who attended Florida State University, Walter Dix was born January 31, 1986 in Coral Springs, Florida is and is a member of Phi Beta Sigma. He is an eight-time NCAA champion, winning outdoor titles in the 100 m (2005 and 2007), the 200 m (2006, 2007, and 2008), and the 4 x 100-meter relay (2008) and indoor titles in the 200 m (2006 and 2007). He is a 15-time All-American.

In the 2007 NCAA East Regional final, Dix set the all-time collegiate record of 19.69 in the 200, breaking a record that had stood since 1988 and posting what was then the world's fastest time of the year. At the 2007 NCAA Outdoor Championships, he set the American Collegiate Record with a time of 9.93 in the 100 m. He also became the first man since 1969 (John Carlos - San Jose State) to win the 100 m and 200 m and run a leg on the winning 4x100 m relay team at the NCAA Championships.

In 2007, he shot to number five on the all time 200 m list with his 19.69. He spent much of early 2008 battling a hamstring injury. However, at the 2008 NCAA Outdoor Championships, Dix won the 200 m while placing fourth in the 100 m.
