Could this be a glimpse of the 2016 U.S. Olympic track team?
This past weekend’s USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore., had several nail-biting races and surprising finishes. The top three finishers in each event earned a spot on the U.S. team that will compete in the 2015 IAAF World Championships in Aug. 22-30 in Beijing, China (provided each has posted the necessary qualifying time). A year from now they’ll be on the same track competing for a shot at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Here’s a look at some of the winners and losers from the meet’s middle distance and distance events. All photos by PhotoRun.net.
