4. Dwight Phillips
1 Gold Medal
The only athlete to win a gold medal in four World Outdoor Championships, this Snellville, GA native also took home gold in the long jump at the 2004 Olympics. His personal best distance of 8.74 meters is all the more impressive when you consider that a motorcycle broke both Phillips’ legs at 14, rendering him unable to walk properly for two years.
