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!
