BBC to Feature Texas Tech Track Program [VIDEO]
The BBC has embarked on a massive project called, “World Olympic Dreams.” The show is following a group of athletes as they attempt to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Next stop for the show is right here in Lubbock. Filming is set to take place Saturday during the Red Raider Open Meet. According to TexasTech.com head coach Wes Kittley said, “”I’m just very excited for the opportunity it brings. It’s an opportunity to showcase our facility in front of the whole world through the BBC. It’s also a great opportunity for our athletes to run against the athletes they have. It just adds to our meet and gives us a lot of credibility.”
