Olympic Trials Coverage

Eugene, Oregon (aka Track Town USA) will play host to the 2012 US Olympic Trials.

The 2012 US Olympic Trials will take place from June 21-July 1, 2012. There are several places to go to follow the action. The home page for the Olympic Trials is: http://tracktown12.gotracktownusa.com/.

The best place for official meet information is the United States of America Track & Field website: http://usatf.org/Events—Calendar/2012/U-S–Olympic-Team-Trials-TF.aspx.

NBC will show twelve hours of television coverage of the Olympic Trials on either NBC or NBC Sports Network. A nice TV schedule and event schedule are listed at this website (note some of the times listed are PDT and some are EDT so pay attention):

As far as I can tell, there is no online streaming of the Olympic Trials. I believe NBC owns the video rights to all the Olympic Trials coverage so if race videos are going to be available anywhere after the race happens, try looking here: http://www.nbcolympics.com/track-and-field/index.html.

The typical websites that I frequent to read coverage of the Olympic Trials and/or see pictures or video interviews are:

Let’s Run – http://www.letsrun.com/

Track & Field News – http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/

RunnerSpace – http://www.runnerspace.com/eprofile.php?event_id=49

FloTrack – http://www.flotrack.org/

Oregon Live – http://www.oregonlive.com/trackandfield/

Eugene Register-Guard – http://www.registerguard.com/web/sports/trackandfield/

Good luck to all the athletes competing at the Olympic Trials. This meet is the culmination of four years of dreaming and training. The Road to London goes through Eugene.
