Norris Frederick named to Team USA squad for Five Nations meet in Glasgow...

Former University of Washington standout Norris Frederick (left/photo by Paul Merca) was named Wednesday to USA Track & Field's roster for the Five Nations Match, January 31 at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Five Nations Match will feature one athlete in each event from five nations: the United States, Great Britain, Sweden, Germany and a Commonwealth Select team. It is a unique country vs. country format that will feature athletes from the different nations battling against each other to earn points towards their teams overall match total.

Frederick, who will compete in the long jump, will be joined on Team USA by 2008 Olympians David Payne, Lolo Jones, Andra Manson, Funmi Jimoh and Amy Yoder Begley, who, like Frederick, opened her season Saturday January 17th at the UW Indoor Preview in Seattle.

Frederick won the long jump at the UW Indoor Preview, jumping 25-8 1/4 (7.83m).
