The Texas Two-Step
The Marble Falls community held fundraising events and presented the family with $10,000 to help pay for meals and other travel expenses while in China. The Manzano family said that whatever money was leftover when they returned would be donated to the Highland Lakes Track and Field Club. Before Leo left for Beijing, the town held a festival in his honor as a send off.
Leo made it through the first heat in Beijing, and qualified to move on to the second, but, unfortunately, didn’t make it past the second heat to the finals. He did, however, represent his country very well, and made his hometown, Capitol Aggregates, and Zachry Corp. very proud.
