Track Trials cont'd

Some friends of ours weren't able to use their tickets one night, so they offered them to us!  It was so exciting to get to sit in the stands and watch the Track & Field trials in person!
Our seats were right by the starting blocks, and close to the finish line.
400m hurdles
The Steeplechase
Evan Jager won the Steeplechase!  This was his first season ever competing in this event and he got 1st in the trials and then went on to get 6th at the Olympics!
Women's 200m
Allyson Felix won, and Carmelita Jeter got 2nd.
Women's 5000m 
 Julie Culley won the race, and Molly Huddle squeaked by with a 2nd place finish! 
Photo Finish for Molly Huddle!
Men's 5000m
Galen Rupp in the lead!
Rupp Wins! (He ended up getting a silver medal in the 10,000m event in London!)
It was fun being so close to the finish line!
The Olympic qualifiers ran a lap in their team uniforms.
Thanks, Sydney & Paul, for sharing your tickets with us!
