I am always interested in covering different events and this weekend brought just that with a Philadelphia tradition, the Penn Relays. With 18,000 athletes and over 100,000 (three day total) fans in attendance, Franklin Field was pushed to the limit as well as the speed and strength of the competitors.
The highlight of the weekend is the Team USA vs The World events. With the extreme Jamaican presence at the relays it wasn’t hard to tell that the island was favored to win EVERY event. The amount of knowledge and passion for the sport that they bring to the relays is unmatched. To be honest, it was quite impressive.
