About Calesio
Calesio Newman took a big step forward in 2012 in picking up a top three U.S. ranking according to Track & Field News. He found success in the 200 meters in the Samsung Diamond League and also with a fourth place finish at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. His time of 20.17 in Eugene, which was a wind-aided personal best, fell .01 seconds away from a spot on Team USA for the London Olympic Games. Afterward he tweeted: “I just want everyone to know I left it all out on the track… I wasn’t looking. I was leaning for the line but lesson learned.” In 2011, Newman became the first graduate from North Carolina A&T to represent the school in an international competition when he traveled to Guadalajara, Mexico, as part of Team USA for the Pan American Games. He was a standout sprinter for North Carolina A&T, winning a total of four MEAC conference titles and finishing runner-up four times.
