The final day of the 2012 Penn Relays begins Saturday at 7 a.m. with several levels of the 10k racewalk. Action will conclude following the college men's 4x400 championship of America.
With the Olympics little more than three months around the corner, the Philadelphia Inquirer notes that Saturday's "USA vs. the World" events will take on even more significance than during a normal year.
"It's definitely time to line up and put our best team together and get the stick around," Carmelita Jeter, the 100-meter gold medalist in last year's World Track and Field Championships, said Friday. "I believe the USA team is training really hard right now, and the Penn Relays is definitely the first place that we want to get the stick around and get this chemistry together so that we can build for London 2012."
The Penn Relays event has been held annually since 1895 and is the oldest track and field event in the United States.
