INDIANAPOLIS - Fans can now be part of the action of the Visa Championship Series like never before with USATF's new Pick-N-Win Fantasy Game.

By picking a 'team' for each stop of the Visa Championship Series, fans might win a trip to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials - Track & Field in Eugene, Oregon or other great prizes!

Starting today (Friday, January 25), fans are invited to create the ultimate track and field team each week by going to to select the athletes you think are going to compete well at that week's meet.

Each Visa Championship Series meet will be "virtually" scored, with 10 points going to the first-place athlete in each event, 8 points to the second-place athlete, 6 points to the third-place athlete and so on down to sixth place. The athletes you select will score points for your team and possibly help you win a weekly prize, awarded to that week's highest scoring team.

After the conclusion of the 2008 AT&T USA Indoor Track & Field Championships, the person whose teams have scored the most points during the Visa Championship Series will win a grand prize trip for two to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Track & Field, presented by Visa!

Overall second-place prize is a $250 Visa Gift Card and Nike gift bag, including but not limited to a Nike/USATF duffel bag, jacket, t-shirt and cap. The third-place prize is a $100 Visa gift card and Nike gift bag.

Saturday's Visa Championship Series event is the Reebok Boston Indoor Games, so be sure to enter your team before Saturday afternoon! For complete rules and scoring, visit and live out your track fantasy with USA Track & Field!
