Where are the U.S. Track & Field Olympic Team Trials being held?

During eight thrill-filled days, more than 80 hours of competition including qualifying heats and finals will air from the famed Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.

Established in 1919, Hayward Field at the University of Oregon is one of the oldest and most iconic track & field venues in the United States.

Hayward Field has hosted the U.S. Olympic Trials for track & field multiple times. Count on NBC’s coverage there to capture nail-biting races in these trials. 

The Team USA Olympic track & field roster is among the hardest to qualify for, with the U.S. leading the medal count at eight consecutive Olympics.

The top three athletes in each event qualify for the Paris Olympics, provided they also hit the Olympic standard qualifying time/mark.
