Super Bowl vet, sprinter Phil McConkey lauds wounded warriors

Phil was pictured in NY Times in 2012.

M55 sprinter Phil McConkey, our own Super Bowl champion, has been scarce on the track of late. But when the big game comes around, he’s a featured figure. Latest gig was taking part in a Wounded Warriors game Wednesday (indoors, thank goodness). ESPN has a great video showing Phil, and the New York Post ran a story quoting Phil. But San Diego-based Phil tells me: “I’ve got a busy travel schedule and probably won’t do any of the big meets, but hopefully be in shape for some late spring/early summer ones.” Great for him — and us. And enjoy Super Sunday, where masters trackos can feel superior about running headlong toward hurdles and pole vault boxes and not each other.
