Mitchell's not done yet

Eugene, OR - Western Carolina's Manteo Mitchell will be running again against Olympic gold medalists this weekend. 

Just five days after placing fifth in the 400 meter, he’ll try his hand at the  200 meter dash, this Friday at the U.S. Olympic trials in Eugene Oregon.

“I have so much confidence in myself after that race on Sunday that I feel like a completely new athlete in the same body. My mindset is on nothing but GOLD! I feel that I can compete in the half lap just as I did with the full one.” said Mitchell in an email to the Asheville Citizens Times.
