OLYMPIC TRACK AND FIELD STARTS FRIDAY!!!

We are one day away (Friday, August 3) from the start of Track and Field competition at the 2012 London Olympic Games!!  Two Iowans will be in competition Friday; AG Kruger and Lisa Koll Uhl.

Kruger, Sheldon/Morningside, will be in Group B of the Hammer Throw qualifying.  Here are the qualifying standards to make it to Sunday’s finals: The qualifying qualification standard is 78.00m or at least best 12 qualified.  Kruger’s seasons best is 79.20.  The qualifying round begins at 6:45 AM CT, Friday morning.

Koll/Uhl, Ft. Dodge/ISU, will be in starting position 9 in the 22 woman 10K field.  The 10K is run as a final only.  The 10K has a history of being dominated by athletes from the African countries and this year should be no different.  A top 10 finish by any one of our American entries would be huge.  The 10K final will run at 3:25 PM CT Friday afternoon.

This is the Olympic Games track and field schedule.  All times listed are EASTERN time zone.  CLICK HERE!
