In this edition of Sports Speak, we venture once again down to The Mighty Purple Cafe in Agana to catch up with a pair of insanely fast women.

Manami Iijima has transitioned well from a swimmer to a tri-athlete with her latest obstacle coming via Iron Man in Subic Bay, Philippines. Iijima talks about her race as well as what her future holds as she strives to become a professional athlete.

The fastest sprinter in Guam history, Regine Tugade, made a short trip back home and managed to swing by Mighty Purple for a quick catch up with GSPN. The current Naval Academy Sprinter discusses how her first year of the Academy is going and the state of her collegiate sprinting career.

All that and a pair of delectable goodies from the Mighty Purple menu in the video below!
