Last Year's High Performance Meet
“We had a great crowd last year and anticipate that our community will again show its love of the sport and excitement for the Olympic Trials by filling the stands,” said Vin Lananna, Associate Athletic Director at the University of Oregon. “The athletes return to Hayward Field again and again because of our fans—they feel inspired, they feel welcomed, and they know that nothing compares to the experience of competing in Track Town, USA.”
Last year, more than 5,600 spectators watched Olympic medalists, world champions, and American record holders running, jumping, and throwing, a preview of the drama and excitement that will fill Hayward Field during the Olympic Trials, to be held June 27 through July 6, 2008.
