U.S.A.T.F. is hosting a hammer meet at noon on Saturday, July 9 at Western Oregon University. While the meet will be in Monmouth, the hammers will be certified and impounded in Eugene; transported-to, and distributed-by, U.S.A.T.F. officials in Monmouth.
We’ve heard that that the start list will include A.G. Kruger (flying back as we publish this), Conor McCullough, and Trials champion Rudy Winkler among others (see below) Here’s hoping someone hung onto the shoes Kruger left in the ring or some kind soul has a pair to loan him.
While Team U.S.A. has recommended to the I.A.A.F. that the Trial‘s top-3 are on the Olympic start list BUT our finicky friends in Monaco like to run the show and our U.S. champion sits at 4th on the U.S.A. performance list.
When we talk about the “fill-the-field” standard we’re referring to the new-in-2015 policy to have thirty-two in each event. Check Oliver, Rob, and Mirko‘s site to track who’s on the Rio roster:

I guess the question needs to be asked, when do we hear this. . .
“Curtis Thompson up”
“Riley Dolezal on deck”
