Video feature: USA vs. the World press conference

You can now add Leonel Manzano to the long list of athletes who have competed in the Penn Relays at multiple levels of the sport.

After winning Outstanding Male Athlete of the Meet honors at the 2007 and 2008 Relays, Manzano turned pro and will run on the United States Distance Medley Relay team in Saturday's USA vs. the World competition.

Manzano talked about the transition from college to the pro ranks at a press conference Friday afternoon. He was joined by a range of big-name American and Jamaican sprinters, and I've put together some video highlights for you.

I'll be back in the morning to get the Relays' biggest day started.

If there's a school you root for, a race result you want to know about or a Penn Relays memory you want to share, join me Saturday morning in The Paddock on the right side of the blog.
