USATF announces roster for USA vs. the World at Penn Relays

4/25/2016
 
INDIANAPOLIS -- Thirty-four U.S. athletes will compete in six relay events at the Penn Relays Carnival on Saturday, April 30 at Franklin Field during USA vs. the World, which will be broadcast live on NBCSN with on-demand coverage on USATF.TV.
 
A Penn Relays staple, USA vs. the World begins live coverage Saturday on NBCSN from 12:30-3 p.m. before track on TV continues with Drake Relays from 3-5 p.m (all times EST).
 
In 2015, Team USA’s men swept the USA vs. the World field, claiming victories in the the 4x100m, 4x200m and 4x400m relays. The women won the 4x1 in a photo finish and were second in both the 4x2 and 4x4.
 
The men’s 4x1 team, which ran 38.68 for the win, returns three of four members of that finals team to the 2016 pool of athletes. Also returning is Patrick Feeney, a newly minted World Indoor Champion in the 4x400m relay, who ran an astounding 4x4 anchor leg at Penn last year for the Team USA’s 3:00.86 win.  
 
USATF.TV will host on-demand coverage of the 2016 Penn Relays Carnival here. Re-watch Team USA’s 2015 victories in the BMW Men’s 4x100m, USATF Men's 4x200m, Nike Men's 4x400m and BMW Women’s 4x200m on-demand on USATF.TV.
