Lolo Jones, Other World Class and Olympic Athletes to Compete in Bloomington

Bloomington, IN - The American Track League will launch their summer series in Bloomington on Friday, May 2nd at the Robert C. Haugh Track & Field Complex on the Indiana University Campus. Featured competitors will be Olympians, Lolo Jones, DeeDee Trotter, IU's own Derek Drouin and several other World Class track and field athletes. The series, hosted by Doyle Management Group, will be a sequence of international caliber track and field meets throughout the United States.

The structure of the meet is designed to be quick and exciting and will feature live music throughout the event from the Boston based, Velveteen Playboys, and the ATL dance team comprised of NFL Cheerleaders. "The feel of the meet is much like that of a track meet within a concert," says Paul Doyle, the founder and CEO of Doyle Management Group. "The main goal of the series is to revolutionize the presentation of the sport and at the same time utilize our athletes as mentors to promote the importance and raise awareness of the childhood obesity epidemic that is affecting children in today's society."

The design of the event will allow for interaction between the athletes and their fans throughout the meet. Fans will be invited down to the field during competition to get up close and personal with the athletes after their event. "This format ensures a very unique experience for all fans," Doyle says.

"It's very exciting when World Class athletes come together to promote a good cause and interact with their fans," says Jordan Riley of the Hoosier Sports Corporation, "We're thrilled that it's happening here in Bloomington."

Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. to let anyone test their speed in the 40 yard dash to earn an opportunity to run against the Olympians in the 100 meter. Scheduled events and live music will begin at 7:00 p.m. Admission to this event is FREE to the public.
