EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The U.S. track and field Olympic trials are heading back to Eugene, Oregon, for the fifth straight time. USA Track and Field announced Thursday that the trials will be held at University of Oregon’s Hayward Field from June 21-30. Eugene is America’s undisputed capital of track, having held last year's world championships, multiple national championships, this year’s Diamond League finale and next, its fifth straight and eighth overall Olympic trials. USATF CEO Max Siegel lauded the city’s organizing committee for successfully pulling off the trials in 2021, when restrictions necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic made the event difficult.
