Manteo Mitchell ran a leg of the 4 x 400 meters, breaking his leg mid-race and gutting it out to the hand-off, allowing the US men's team to make the London Olympic final. His story was the most viral story of the day on may sites, and had over 60,000 views on our FB site that day!
The good news is that Manteo is healthy once again, and just tested himself this weekend, running a 60 meter race in 6.80 and taking second in the 200 meters in 21.37. That is two weeks ahead of Manteo representing the US team in Glasgow, Scotland in an international match. We wish Manteo much luck this year and respect him for his gutty run last year!
