Jackie Joyner-Kersee weighs in on today's track and field events at the Olympics

It was both a good and bad day for American track and field athletes at the Olympics yesterday. Runner Leo Manzano came from behind to win a silver medal in the men's 1500 meter final, but Lolo Jones faced disappointment when she missed a bronze medal in the 100-meter hurdles by one tenth of a second.

More track and field events are coming up today at the Games, including a shot for the American women to medal in long jump, an event that hasn't been won by an American since 1988.

Jackie Joyner-Kersee was the last American to win gold in the event and she joins Early Start this morning to weigh in on the various competitions on the agenda today.
