Meredith Scerba with the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission says this is a great opportunity to showcase all Cleveland has to offer.
Scerba, speaking with WKYC's Erin Kennedy on "Channel 3 News Today" early Friday morning, says it is going to be a fun experience.
"There is nothing more inspiring to watch than these athletes. I've seen a 92-year-old man do a pole vault, a 72-year-old running a six-minute mile."
