Eugene to Host 2008 Olympic Trials
I remember reading last week about how Eugene was trying to pull this off after hosting Olympic trials back in the 70s and 80s. But after seeing dozens of meets at Hayward Field, I'm glad to see that Eugene will once again be Track Town, USA. Hat tip to Rob for the tip, though I linked to the local paper in Eugene instead of USA Today.
Congrats to the City of Eugene and the University of Oregon for landing this great event. Now where can I buy tickets? I'm a track junkie (ran distance events in high school and college), and really want an excuse to make a trip back to Eugene for a meet.
