Reyes Getting Ready for 2012 Olympics

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Olympian Andrew Reyes has to move fast. He is organizing a 3-on-3 basketball tournament in the Tri-Cities July 16th and 17th.

Plus, he is training right now to run the 200 meters in the 2012 Olympic Games in London and to become the 1st ever medal winner for Liberia.

Reyes ran the 4x100 for the African Country in the Olympics in 2000 and his team finished in the top 12 in the world.

But now, he is 36, and running against athletes in their 20s. Still, he thinks he can medal in 2012.

"I have to work out much harder than they do," said Reyes. "But, I do have experience. It could be an interesting race in 2012 in London. Hey, we'll see whose going to win."
