Returning to one of the most hallowed sites in the sport, the 2009 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships will take place at Hayward Field, site of the '72, '76, '80, and the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials. Eugene has long been dubbed "Track Town, USA" for its rich track and field history and the community's overwhelming appreciation of the sport. Amidst traditionally standing-room only crowds, Hayward Field will welcome Visa Champions such as Terrence Trammell, Lolo Jones, Adam Nelson, Tyson Gay, Shalane Flanagan, Jenn Stucynski and many more world-class athletes attempting to break records and defend their coveted titles.
The United States' best athletes will also invade Oregon for the chance to represent Team USA in Berlin, Germany this August at the IAAF World Championships, the first major international track and field event in the Olympic stadium since the 1936 Olympic Games. Recalling history, this pre-World War II Olympic Games is the seminal event in USATF’s history. During the 1936 Games, Jesse Owens’four gold medal performance established his legendary status as an American and international icon.
