You can claim three good reasons to cast a vote for Leigh Daniel and Nick Cordes before 11:59 p.m. tonight in the NBC “Today Throws a Wedding” contest.
Daniel and Cordes met in the Olympics Development Program in Chicago but it was a year before a public profession of true love in 2004.
The Tech women’s track star had advanced so far as to win first-place titles in the NCAA 5,000 and 10,000-meter events at the World University Games in Spain in 1999. Cordes had been a Division Two national runner-up in cross-country from Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio. He qualified twice for Olympic Trials.
