NEW YORK — Two-time Olympian and world-record holder Wallace Spearmon leads a stellar Men's 300 meter field at the NYRR Millrose Games, one that showcases both Olympic and World Championships medalists. The 107th edition of the NYRR Millrose Games will be held on Saturday, February 15, at The New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory.

Spearmon, 29, is one of the most decorated sprinters in American history, having earned World Championships medals in the 200 meters and 4x100 meter relay. A short sprint specialist, Spearmon has a personal best of 19.65 seconds for 200 meters, and has already run 20.68 this season.

"I love the 300m distance," said Spearmon. "I am ready and can't wait to race at the Millrose Games at The Armory."

In 2006, Spearmon set the 300 meter indoor world record, timing a blistering 31.88 seconds. The mark could well be in jeopardy on the fast oval at The Armory.

Tickets are still available. Fans are urged to visit NYRRMillroseGames.org to purchase tickets. The 2014 NYRR Millrose Games will begin at noon and conclude at 6:30 pm, featuring the prime time window from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Further questions can be answered by calling The Armory at (212) 923-1803 ext. 7200.
