Manny Huerta was born in Cuba, came to the U.S. when he was 13, trains in Costa Rica, and is now a proud member of the U.S. Olympic Triathlon team after an awesome race in San Diego. This kid is a great story!
Lauren Fleshman ran sub 15:00 for 5,000 meters (14:58:58) and was a favorite to make the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team. Dealing with a foot injury that would lead to surgery, she took fifth in the trials and didn’t get to go to Beijing. Now she is a few weeks from the 2012 trials and this time it is an IT Band injury that has kept her running to a minimum. But her attitude is awesome and this interview is absolutely one of our all-time favorites.
