Great race by Texas senior [tag]Leo Manzano[/tag] in last weekend’s NCAA Track and Field Championships. He leads the 1500m race wire to wire and has an incredible kick at the end to pull away easily. I’m not a big track guy but watching him run the last lap of that race got me fired up as a Longhorn fan.

Watch the race below:
