Default USA Track and Field Olympic Trials

Hey don't forget the Oly. Trials in Eugene are on NBC this week.

Some Iowans in the field include: Krueger (Iowa) who made the olympic team with a 3rd place finish in the Hammer Throw.

Lolo Jones in the 100 hurdles
Former UNI national champion Tyler Mulder will be in the 800 prelims and has the 5th best qualifying time, exactly 1 second behind the nation's top qualifier.
.
Ashley Miller (former state champ Tipton?) will be in the 800 and 1500.
Former Dowling star Katie Flood will be in the 1500
Kianna Elahi of Iowa State is in the 400hurdles

Mat Clark was listed on the list of applied for the Decathlon but he is not participating.

Iowa State's Megan Nelson will be in the 10,000 meter run tonight. Those are just a few I saw as I skimmed through. If there is any more...feel free to add on and let us all know the results.


Good luck to all Iowans and those representing Iowa universities and your home state!

I'll add Chase Madison to that list, throwing the discus. He's a former Newton Grad, attended Iowa State, then went to Kentucky to finish his college career. He is currently living in Cedar Falls.

LOL yeah, drives a taxi full time and trains in his other time. I gave him some crap about driving a taxi with a Master's degree.

Congrats to the following:

Former Panther elite NC - Tyler Mulder in the 800 winning the top qualifying spot to get to the semifinals! Iowa's Erik Sowinski qualified 7th. In Mulders heat...he was stuck in 6th place for the first lap and then even with 200 meters to go was still in 4th and then he overtook Martin who led the entire race at the finishline.
Ashley Miller - qualified for semis in the 800.

Lolo Jones - qualified for semis in 100 hurdles
Lisa Uhl (ISU) got 4th in 10,000m and qualified for LONDON! Congrats!
Megan Nelson - finishing 12th in the 10,000 meter run.

In case you didn't catch the meet on TV. Here is a recap!

Ashley Miller a disappointing finish despite a heck of a run, running 2:05...getting 15th outta 16 in the semis of the 800 meter run.

Erik Sowinski (Iowa) led 730 meters of his heat in the 800 meter run before former Panther TYLER MULDER took home the title to reach the finals! Mulder posted the 3rd overall fastest time out of the two heats by only .3 seconds. Top 3 in the finals make the Olympic team!

LoLo Jones made her second consecutive Olympic team by coming in a suprising 3rd in the finals of the 100 hurdles!!! I was really hoping she'd run a great race and she did!

So far, two Iowans are going to England and hopefully 3 more will be also going! Check out Tyler in the 800 finals (the final event for the day) Monday night at approximately 10pm central time!

if you have Directv...turn it to 603...as Tyler Mulder will try to become an Olympian in about 10 minutes in the final of the 800 meters!!!!

Lisa Uhl qualified as a finalist in the 5000 meters after becoming an Olympian at 10,000m.

he ran a new PR to my knowledge. He started in the 2nd lane and got out to a great start but as the field cut in after the first 100...he got stuck on the inside and in the back of the pack...and horrible place to be for a full out half-mile sprint. He made a great charge at the end and got trapped just barely with 110 meters to go. I think he thought the first lane would open up like it did two days ago but it didn't and when he realized that he tried to make a late move to the outside but it was too late. A great race nontheless. Couldn't be more proud of Tyler!

Still no panther Olympians in panther history? Is this correct. We have come so so close.

IIRC, .01 of a second for Joey Woody in the 400H trials in 2000.

Does anyone know Tyler Mulder's status for the Olympic Trials?
