The Most Exciting Finish to a Track Race in U.S. History

With more than 20 running, throwing and jumping disciplines, track and field is an infinitely exciting sport to watch. The only challenge is that interest—and TV exposure—tends to wane in non-Olympic years. To whet your appetite for this year’s U.S. Olympic Trials and the upcoming Olympics, take a look back at epic finish of the men’s 800-meter run at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore. Nick Symmonds won the race but the other two Olympic spots came down to an amazing photo finish. If that doesn’t get you fired up to watch more track and field this summer, we’re not sure what will.
