This Friday and Saturday, January 24 and 25, The New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory will play host to the New Balance Games, a two-day track and field meet that will showcase a number of Olympians and top American stars.
Also taking center stage at the New Balance Games will be Olympians Will Claye and Morgan Uceny. Claye won the 2012 Olympic silver medal in the triple jump, while Uceny was ranked the best 1500 meter runner in the world in 2011. On Saturday, Claye will compete in the men’s triple jump, while Uceny will toe the line in the women’s mile.
“We are moving the New Balance Games feature section up to major meet status,” said Dr. Norbert Sander, Executive Director of the Armory Foundation. “With a background of 5,000 high school amateur competitors, what could be better for any sport.”
