Seeing World Records in TrackTown USA

The road to London and the Olympics this year for Track and Field came through Eugene, also known as TrackTown USA. Featuring top-notch athletes from across the country, a huge fan festival, live music and more, the Olympic Trials ran from June 21-July 1, 2012.

I attended the events on Saturday, June 23 at historic Hayward Field to cheer on the decathletes and sprinters. With seats right in from of the finish line, it proved to be one exciting day of races.

The climax of the day’s events by far was watching Ashton Eaton cross the finish line of the 1,500m in seconds under is personal record to set a new world record for the decathlon, take gold at the meet and move on as a member of Team USA to the Olympics!
