The amount of talent, work and grit required to qualify for the Olympics has always fascinated Mike Mangione. Despite lacking all three qualities, Mike has always attributed his lack of Olympic success on his being vertically limited. Well … that excuse was destroyed when Mike met professional runner, two-time Olympian, 1,500-meter silver medalist and fellow human of 5’5″ stature, Leo Manzano. Leo’s story is nothing short of inspirational. With mounds of raw talent and determination, Leo went from starting his running career in hiking boots and jeans to wearing his own brand of shoe, gracing the side of a Coke can and taking silver at the 2012 Games in London. On a warm December afternoon in Texas, Leo took time from training to sit with Mike and dive into the Time & Mystery of his remarkable career and life. Join us at the table for this two-part saga … Time & The Mystery: Conversations with Leo Manzano.
