Boys and Girls HS Relays Featured Again at Reebok GP
From Barbara Heubner
NEW YORK, NY (May 29) – Forty boys and girls high-school relay teams are set to compete at the Reebok Grand Prix on Saturday, organizers announced. Teams from both genders will be competing in 4x100 and 4x400 relays, while the boys will also be racing the 4x800 relay.
The relay teams will compete on the same track as some of the top Olympic-caliber athletes in the world. Among the highlights will be 100-meter matchups between triple World Champion Tyson Gay and Usain Bolt, who recently became the second-fastest man in history; and Veronica Campbell of Jamaica and American Lauryn Williams in a rematch of their World Championship 100-meter photo finish. Also on tap will be Chinese hurdling sensation Liu Xiang; 400-meter American Record-holder Sanya Richards; and Jenn Stuczynski, the most-exciting pole vaulter in the world this season.
The Reebok Grand Prix will begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 31, at Icahn Stadium. New bleacher seats, along the backstretch with clear views of the finish line, will be available for $15. Grandstand tickets range from $50-$24. Tickets are still available, by phone at 1-877-TIX-TRAC or on-line at www.ReebokGrandPrix.com.
