"Best" or "Special" or "Astonishing" are a few words that truly describe John Muir High School Alumni - Obea Moore. 


Mr. Moore shares a world class affiliation with an elite group of athletes from California who championed their legacy in the sport of Track & Field at California's CIF State Championships, but what about internationally?  


On the surface, his accomplishments seem reminiscent of other track & field icons from Pasadena, CA.  For example, between his freshman and Junior years  at John Muir, Mr. Moore dominated the 400m; he set CIF Best Times for each year.  During those same years, he was the State Champion in the 200m, 400m, help set a 4x400 relay record, and helped his high school captures it's 7th CIF State Championship.   In 1995, again, while a student at John Muir High School, he represented the U.S. at the  1995 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships in Santiago, Chile, where he set the still standing World Youth Best in the 400 meters. He would leave Santiago with two Golds and one Silver. 


Some would argue, given the history of track & field in Pasadena, that what Mr. Moore accomplished was expected.   The norm.  Not really the "Best" or "Special" or "Astonishing", and that proving otherwise, is or should be enough to, at a minimum, keep his name alive in track & field.  Certainly here at PASHOF, right?  We like to refer "those" people to Mr. Moore's performance at the Penn Relays in 1997. 


In 1997, Mr. Moore and his fellow Mustang alumni, set s stadium record (3:08.72). It remains unbroken nearly 20 years later.  Mr. Moore's  split of 45.08 equaled the fastest high school leg at the Relays. 


On April 8, 2015, Mr. Moore was announced as a member of  Penn Relays Wall of Fame Class of 2015. 


Mr. Moore's induction into the Penn Relays Wall of Fame gives birth to a new beginning - a national determination that  Pasadena's very own, Mr. Obea Moore, is  the greatest high school quarter miler, ever. 


Mr. Moore is a member of PASHOF's 2015-16 Hall of Fame Inductees.
