Re: US Olympic Trials - Track and Field

I want Lolo Jones to win the Gold so badly...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Lolo isn't in great form and the 100mH is one of the most competitive events at the Trials. In fact she's only ranked ninth in the US this year.

Re: US Olympic Trials - Track and Field

Ashton Eaton set a World Record in the Decathlon storming his way to winning the 1500m!

His reaction was great!

Lolo Jones goes to the Olympics again too!

Pleased for Lolo! Really didn't think she would make it.

Re: US Olympic Trials - Track and Field

Two ladies (one of them Allison Felix) tied for 3rd in the 100 m

The USA can only seed 3 athletes to London and there are no tiebreaker procedures in place. I wonder how it will be settled.

Re: US Olympic Trials - Track and Field

Allyson is capable of running a sub 11.00 Tarmoh has yet to prove. A run-off must happen.

Reportedly, they've both expressed reluctance about doing a run-off.

Where did you hear this? From what I understand, it still is not settled.

From when race finished on TV. Next day they said it was unsettled. Sorry.

Can we get a list of all US qualifiers?
