Gardner-Webb University welcomed professional Nike athlete and 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist Manteo Mitchell to Spangler Stadium on Saturday during the football game against Wofford College at 6 p.m. He spoke to student groups, spent time with select donors and signed autographs for fans. Mitchell earned international praise for his heroic efforts in the 4X400 meter relay preliminaries during the 2012 Olympics, finishing his run despite suffering a broken bone in his leg at the 200-meter mark.
