About US


We all have to start or restart at some point in our lives. With that being said, I am not perfect, and as an Olympian, I didn't get there overnight. So, as we embark on growing this apparel brand and refining our clothing line, I'd like you to hop on board and enjoy the journey.

Acknowledging that our website is a work in progress, I invite you to explore and share your insights. Your patience is appreciated as we collectively shape and refine both our apparel and this digital space into something remarkable.

For any thoughts, suggestions, or inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us at Additionally, stay connected and follow our journey on Instagram: @leomanzano.

Best regards,

Leo Manzano



Leonel “Leo” Manzano, a highly decorated track star representing the United States in six world championships, has etched his legacy with a finishing kick that embodies resilience and determination. Born in Guanajuato, Mexico, Leo's journey to success started when his family immigrated to the United States. Growing up in Granite Shoals/Marble Falls, Texas, his passion for running flourished during his years at Marble Falls High School, where he clinched an impressive nine Texas 4A state championships.

Leo's track prowess continued at the University of Texas, Austin, where, despite being an underdog due to his size, he claimed five NCAA National Championship titles and became the Men’s Track Athlete of the Year in his senior year. Leo's professional career kicked off with a bang as he qualified for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, igniting a flame that fueled numerous victories, including a silver medal in the 1500 meters at the 2012 London Olympics.

Amidst his triumphs, Leo embraced fatherhood with the birth of his son, Maxamilliano “Max,” after the 2012 Olympics. The subsequent years saw Leo's continued success on the track, culminating in his induction into the University of Texas, Austin, Hall of Honor in 2018.

As the most decorated athlete in Track and Field at the University of Texas, Austin, Leo's impact extended beyond the track. His inspirational story reached global audiences through speaking engagements at renowned companies and features in media outlets like Latino Leaders, Sports Illustrated, and Austin Fit Magazine.


In 2019, Leo announced his retirement, citing a calf injury and a desire to spend more time with his family. However, this marked not an end but a new beginning for Leo. In his heartwarming vision for an Austin-based start-up apparel brand, Leo seamlessly integrates the symbolism of lions as bearers of good fortune, weaving a narrative of faith, strength, resilience, and familial pride.

The brand, adorned with the majestic image of a winged lion, becomes a representation of the extended family Leo envisions for the community. The collaborative spirit with local designers and organizations mirrors the unity within Austin, akin to the bond found in close-knit families.

Leo's commitment to job creation for young athletes and local organizations transforms the winged lion into a beacon of hope, symbolizing the triumph over challenges. Each garment becomes a tangible manifestation of the community's aspirations, echoing the values of a supportive, nurturing family.

As a brand ambassador for the Ascension Seton Austin Marathon, Leo integrates the winged lion imagery, infusing the event with majesty and determination. The winged lion becomes a symbol not only for the brand but for the runners—a celebration of strength and courage, reminiscent of family members supporting each other.

In Leo's motivational speeches, the winged lion serves as a metaphor for the community's collective power, encouraging individuals to view their community as an extended family. Embracing the spirit of the winged lion inspires individuals to spread their wings, contributing to personal growth and success—a reflection of the unwavering support within a loving family.

In this touching way, the winged lion becomes an integral part of Leo's multifaceted journey, weaving through the fabric of the apparel brand, community development initiatives, and motivational endeavors. It stands as a symbol embodying the soaring aspirations of not only Leo but the entire vibrant city of Austin, its organizations, and beyond, creating a heartwarming sense of familial unity and support within the community.
