AUSTIN, Texas (April 20, 2015) – FloSports, the authentic source for high-quality sports content and coverage, announced today that it will live-stream and provide live results from the 121st Penn Relays April 23-25 at the University of Pennsylvania. FloSports has covered the oldest and largest track and field competition in the U.S. since 2007, and this year will mark the second consecutive year of FloSports’ live and on-demand coverage from Franklin Field.
