Next Meet: Reebok Grand Prix

I will be leaving on Thursday, heading up the New York City for the Reebok Grand Prix event. This is one of the more up and coming events in track and field, just recently gaining its Grand Prix status according to the IAAF. The preliminary field in the 110 hurdles is very outstanding. #1 ranked and World Record holder (12.88) Liu Xiang will see his first action this season on American soil, along with American Record holder Dominique Arnold (12.90) and current co-World Leaders Anwar Moore and David Payne (13.12). Rounding out the field will be Terrence Trammell (13.01), Aries Merritt (13.12), myself (13.14), Maurice Wignall (13.17) and Ryan Wilson (13.17). This event is looking like one of the top events of the entire competition. Stay tuned, the meet will be televised June 2 from 11pm-12:30am Eastern on ESPN2 and re-air June 3 from 1-2pm Eastern on CBS. Visit the meet website at www.reebokgrandprix.com for more info.
