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.
