So the Olympic trials in Eugene now have a special feeling. The 800 final tonight was the local hit to date, all 3 qualifiers for the Olympic team being local runners. I was reminded of the time, at a twilight local meet when I was in grad school, than 4 or 5 local runners all broke the 4-min. mile in the same race. It made the cover of Sports Illustrated. Yes, Eugene loves its track and field.
