Flocasts has signed exclusive rights deal with ArmoryTrack for the New Balance Games and Armory Collegiate Invitational to be streamed as part of the 2013 Flotrack Pro Live series. NB Games and the Armory Collegiate will feature some of the nation's best high school, college and pro athletes over two weekends and three days of competition. All the races can be viewed on Flotrack.com.
Armory CEO Dr. Norbert Sander said, "The Armory is excited to be partnering with Flocasts and Flotrack this indoor season. To be apart of the first ever Flotrack Pro Live Series is an honor. We have a partner to invest that ensures these great meets get out to the widest audience possible."
Flocasts CMO and co-founder Mark Floreani added, "We are excited to have NB Games and the Armory Collegiate part of the Flotrack Pro package. It is great to partner with Dr. Sander and the Armory staff on these events."
The New Balance Games will feature the top high schoolers in the nation shooting for national leading times, four Millrose Games Mile automatic qualifiers and high school indoor records. Additionally, the elite women's mile has a combination of Olympians (Australian Genevieve LaCaze), NCAA Champions (Sarah Bowman), World Champs competitors (Canadian Nicole Sifuentes) and high school record holders (Mary Cain of Bronxville, N.Y.). The men's mile will showcase Robby Andrews, who has returned to full health after a challenging 2012. Two gold Olympic medalists — Keshia Baker and Mary Wineberg — will run in the women's 400m run andAshley Higginson and Stephanie Garcia face off in the first elite mile steeplechase in Armory history.
The action returns to The Armory one week later at the Armory Collegiate Invitational. Andrews looks to make history in the 1,000 where he will attempt to break the American Record, which is held by David Krummenacker in 2:17.86. The chase for a ticket to the NCAA Indoor Nationals begins in New York City as the nation’s top collegians look to guarantee their trip to Fayetteville, Ark. Powerhouses such as Arkansas, BYU, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, Princeton, Stanford, Texas, Texas A&M and Villanova are expected to attend.
