This year’s NYRR Millrose Games promises to be one of the best ever and will feature athletes like the “fast and fashionable” Sanya Richards-Ross, who will look to break her own Armory track record of 50.89 in the 400m.
Ashton Eaton, the decathlon and indoor pentathlon world record holder, as well as Olympic high jump medalist Derek Drouin will also bring excitement to the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory along with many more of the sport’s most decorated athletes.
This marks the fourth NYRR Millrose Games at The Armory and will include the country’s premier professional, college and high school track & field athletes competing on one stage.
Dr. Norb Sander, Executive Director of The Armory Foundation, predicts “both the men’s and women’s NYRR Wanamaker Mile will be the most dramatic in indoor history.” http://www.tshirtbox.co.uk/t-shirt-printing-uk
