Mitchell in Finals of U.S. Olympic Trials

Eugene, OR - Former WCU standout Track & Field athelete Manteo Mitchell has advanced to the 400-meter final on the second day of the United States Olympic Trials.

The top eight from Saturday's semifinal will compete in the finals,  with Mitchell finishing with the sixth best time. As one of the top eight runners, Manteo has already qualified for the pool to be selected to run on the U.S. 4x400-meter relay team in the 2012 Olympic Games. He also has a shot at becoming one of three Americans who will represent the United States in the men's 400-meter dash (top three from the final will race for the U.S.).

The finals are at 7:20 pm ET with television coverage on NBC from 7-8 pm on Sunday.  Good Luck Manteo from the Catamount Nation.
