Leo Manzano Wins Silver Medal

Leo Manzano of Team USA ran the best time he’s run all season and came away with a silver medal in the 1500 meters in 3:34.79. It just wasn’t enough to beat Taoufik Makhloufi of Algeria, who won gold in 3:34.08.

Born in Mexico, Manzano moved with his family to Texas at the age of four where he soon began running … After a standout high school career for Marble Falls High School (Marble Falls, Texas), where he won a total of nine Texas 4A state championships, Manzano competed for the University of Texas … In Austin, he became the first ever Longhorn to make the U.S. Olympic squad in the 1,500m
