Credentials & Guest Passes

The Olympic Trials will be a controlled-access event. Admission to Hayward Field will be by credential, guest pass, or admission ticket only. Photo-style credentials will be required to access competition and athlete services areas such as the warm-up track, practice track, sports medicine, athlete seating, and the event shuttle.

Credential Photos

Athletes who wish to submit an electronic photo to save time on-site may submit a passport-size photo of themselves and a copy of the front page of their passport if they have not already submitted these during the Indoor Championships. The photo must meet the following requirements:

  • measure 1.75" x 1.4" (45 mm x 35 mm)
  • show the front view of the athlete's head on a white background
  • be submitted in JPEG (*.jpg) format (50-500 KB in size)
  • be identified by full name and date of birth in the following format for the filename:
    FamilyName_GivenName_PassportNumber.jpg (example: Thomas_Denise_300786453.jpg)

Athletes who have either had their photo taken by the LOC prior to the Olympic Trials, have submitted an electronic photo to info@eugene08.com, or have submitted a photo to USATF during the Indoor Championships will pick up their credentials at Autzen Stadium during packet pick-up with little to no waiting. In order to avoid delays or long lines when picking up credentials, it is highly recommended that all athletes and athlete support personnel submit their electronic photos in advance of their arrival in Eugene.

Photo credentials will be made during the packet-pick-up process for credentialed personnel who have not submitted a photo prior to the Olympic Trials. Athlete and athlete support personnel requesting a credential must appear in-person and present a valid, government-issued photo identification (driver's license, passport or military ID) to receive their credential. Athlete ("A") and Athlete Support ("AS") credentials will be processed only at Autzen Stadium during the same hours as packet pick-up.

All "Athlete" ("A") credentials, "Athlete Support" ("AS") credentials, Personal Medical ("PM") credentials, and Guest Passes must be picked up and/or purchased during packet pick-up. See packet pick-up schedule.

  • Athlete Credential ("A") - Each athlete qualified and declared for the Olympic Trials will receive one "Athlete" ("A") credential for himself/herself.
  • Athlete Support Credential ("AS") - Each athlete qualified and declared for the Olympic Trials will receive one complimentary "Athlete Support" ("AS") credential for his/her coach, which is good for all sessions. Individuals receiving this credential must meet the guidelines below. Requests for Athlete Support ("AS") credentials must be completed at the time of entry. The "AS" credential is available to coaching personnel only.
  • Personal Medical Credential ("PM") - Each athlete may purchase one Personal Medical ("PM") credential, which is good for all sessions. Individuals receiving this access must meet the guidelines below. Requests for Personal Medical ("PM") credentials must be completed at the time of entry. The "PM" credential is available to true medical personnel only.
  • Guest Pass - Each athlete may purchase one guest pass for additional personal coaches or family members. Individuals receiving this pass must meet the guidelines below. Requests for purchase of a guest pass must be completed at time of entry; however, the guest pass will be paid for at packet pick-up.

Athlete Support Credentials, Personal Medical Credentials, and Guest Pass Guidelines

  1. All participating athletes may request one (1) free "AS" credential for their coach by specifying the name of the individual designated to receive that credential on their entry form. Athlete designation will be the only way a coach will be able to obtain an "AS" credential to work with his/her athlete. USATF reserves the right to deny "AS" credentials to any coach who (a) has been convicted of a doping violation; or (b) is under investigation by USADA or other authorities. USATF also may deny credentials to coaches whose actions have indicated unethical patterns of behavior. The "AS" credential is only available to the coach of record. It is not available to family members unless said family member is the true coach of record.
  2. Participating athletes will be able to purchase (or authorize the purchase of) one (1) guest pass by providing the name of the individual for whom the guest pass is intended on their entry form. Only the individuals specified by participating athletes for this purpose will be allowed to purchase such guest passes. USATF reserves the right to deny a guest pass to any individual who (a) has been convicted of a doping violation; or (b) is under investigation by USADA or other authorities. USATF also may deny guest passes to individuals whose actions have indicated unethical patterns of behavior.
  3. No coach or support staff who is currently banned or under investigation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) may be authorized to receive or be given an "AS" credential/"PM" credential or guest pass, whether complimentary or purchased.
  4. Any unauthorized person in possession of an Athlete Support credential ("AS"), Personal Medical credential ("PM"), or guest pass and/or found in any credential-restricted area of Hayward Field, athlete warm-up areas, or other restricted zones of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Track & Field, will be immediately escorted from the facility, and the credential/guest pass will be revoked. Athletes who ignore this policy may be subject to penalty.
