  • Women’s 1500 Meters at 3:55 PM EDT
    • Jenny Simpson
    • Morgan Uceny
    • Shannon Rowbury
  • Men’s 4×400 Meters Relay at 4:20 PM EDT
    • Preliminary Team:
      • Manteo Mitchell*
      • Joshua Mance
      • Tony McQuay
      • Bryshon Nellum
       
    • (Probable) Finals Team:
      • Michael Tinsley
      • Joshua Mance
      • Tony McQuay
      • Bryshon Nellum

As of when I write this, the women’s 4×100 meter team has not been officially announced but it will probably see Tarmoh and Williams subbed out for Felix and Jeter. For *Manteo Mitchell, he had a great race and helped his team get to the finals, but he broke his leg halfway through the race and is out for the rest of the season. This follows LaShawn Merritt already having pulled a hamstring in round 1 of the 400 meters, and Jeremy Wariner tearing his hamstring in practice on Tuesday. Michael Tinsley will probably be the man to replace Mitchell in the relay.

I would also like to thank the sponsors that are supporting our Olympic Athletes despite being penalized by corrupt policies of the IOC, IAAF, and USATF that are earning billions of dollars off of the backs of our athletes through slave labor. Please show your support of these organizations and thank them if you use their services or by mentioning them on Facebook or Twitter.
