Team spirit


Relay-on-Poduim2-300x229Glenroy’s contribution to the winning relay team goes beyond his blazing speed on the track. He’s widely known as the glue that held the group of runners together, pushing past egos to convey the importance of succeeding as a unit.

Working with others wasn’t always a priority to Glenroy. To hear him tell it, he started out as a fairly selfish athlete. “I wanted to succeed as an individual,” he says. “I wanted to be the fastest guy in the 100m, I wanted to jump the furthest, I was always interested in me.” That began to change when he competed on the Olympic bobsledding team in 1994, and then when he switched from running the 100m to being part of the 4 x 100m relay team at Louisiana State University, where he studied English and History. “I started seeing the value in working as a team and the satisfaction you get when you work as a group and you reach levels that you haven’t reached as an individual,” says Glenroy. “I started understanding more and more that a team could prove to be something special.”
