Olympic Trials Men's 800 Meter Finals
If you didn't get a chance to watch the men's 800 meter finals on Monday night you missed a very exciting race. The top 3 finishers join the Olympic team to represent the US in the 800 meters.
All three have an Oregon connection. First and third place finishers, Nick Symmonds and Christian Smith are affiliated with the Oregon Track Club Elite program and U of O sophomore Andrew Wheating came in second.
Be sure and catch the lunging dive Smith takes to sneak into third at the finish line. He will be on the inside lane.
