Man today was an awesome day for Texas fans at the Track and Field Olympic Trials in Eugene. Former longhorn Andre Manson was 2nd in the High Jump making it to the Olympics with former teammate Trey Hardee and my buddy Jake Morse was ever so close getting 4th in the 3000 meter steeplechase. Good job men. Tomorrow is Leo Manzano in the 1500 (Closest race to the mile in outdoor track) and its going to be a good one.
Update: Jake Morse Video
Also congrats to friend and former Colorado Buffalo Jorge Torres who was 3rd in the 10k making it to Beijing. Back in the day he hooked a few friends and I up with a place in Boulder for a summer to train. Congrats Jorge on all the hard work and your ticket to the big game. This is one of the nicest guys in distance running.
