US Track and Field Championships in Eugene

The USATF championships were held here again last week and over the weekend. I run on the same track as these guys, only much slower :-)

The photo below is of Eugenian Nick Symmonds (Oregon Track Club Elite) winning the 800m. See also this panorama shot, which shows the 800m finish and all of Hayward Field.

If you're a track fan, keep your eye on Ashton Eaton, who placed second in the decathalon despite being only a junior at UO (he won the NCAAs earlier in the spring).

Complete results from USATF web site.

Phoebe Wright, who came in 3rd in 800, lives right down the street and is one of my daughter's best friends! She was a walk-on at Tennessee and seems to be progressing rapidly, from 2.16 in high school to 2.01 on Sunday, three years later.

I ran for Coach Lannana 25 years ago, at Dartmouth. Good to see yet another generation of runners going fast for Vin.
