LA Galaxy midfielder Bryan Jordan to compete in the 104th Millrose Games at Madison Square Garden

CARSON, Calif. – LA Galaxy midfielder
Bryan Jordan will represent the Galaxy and Major League Soccer in the Super
60 II
at the 104th Millrose Games in New York City. Launched in 2010, the Super 60 II is a 60-meter proving ground
for stars to showcase the universal component of speed in all sports, and to
help determine which sport has the most potent combination of power, speed and
acceleration.

Jordan will compete in the Super
60 II
alongside former track athlete turned NFL star Jacoby Jones, a wide
receiver with the Houston Texans, as well as former NBA star Jay Williams,
former MLB All-Star Junior Spivey and Olympic bobsled gold medalist Steve
Mesler, a former decathlete. Former NFL star Anthony Dorsett Jr., who played in
a pair of Super Bowls during an eight-year NFL career, is also back to defend
his title from last season.

The 25-year-old Jordan is entering his fourth
season with the Galaxy. Capable of playing on either flank or up front, Jordan
is one of the Galaxy’s most versatile options off the bench. Since making his
MLS debut on Sept. 6, 2008, the Temple
City-native has played in
35 regular season games, making eight starts, while scoring two goals and
adding one assist.

The 104th Millrose Games will be contested on
Friday, January 28, 2011 at Madison
Square Garden.
The first event of USA Track & Field’s Visa Championship Series, the Millrose
Games will be televised live from 5-7 p.m. (PT) on ESPN2.

The Galaxy will open the 2011 MLS season on Tuesday, March
15 when they head to Seattle
to take on the Seattle Sounders FC at Qwest Field in MLS First Kick 2011,
presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods. That game, which will kick off at 6:30
p.m., will be shown live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, as well as online at
ESPN3.com. The Galaxy will then host the New England Revolution in their home
opener at 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 20 at The Home Depot Center. Tickets are available for that match through the Galaxy Kickoff Pack, which includes four tickets and two Galaxy blankets, starting at $96.  BUY NOW
