​After serving in World War I as a Lieutenant (field artillery) in the U.S. Marines, Paddock studied at the University of Southern California. There he became a member of the track & field team and excelled in the sprint events. 


After the Allied Games in 1919, in which soldiers of the allied nations competed against each other, Paddock was the first person named "The fastest man alive."


Three years after graduation from Pasadena, Paddock represented his country and won a gold medal at the 1920 Summer Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium in the 100 and a silver in the 200. Paddock later won silver in the 200 at the 1924 Olympic Games. In 1928, Paddock participated in his third Olympic Games, but failed to reach the 200m final.


In 1943, during World War II, both Major General William P. Upshur and Paddock died in a plane crash near Sitka, Alaska.  Before his death, he managed the Pasadena Star News.
