The weather in the area was absolutely brutal and I think really had an effect on the performances...re-scheduling at the last minute, etc.

The performance by Emily Sisson in the 10K was a beautiful thing to watch. In talking with Grace, I think the heat was really a factor even that early on Saturday. She belongs in that type competition and it was great to see the Rice jersey among the world's best...great things to come.

Allegedly, tickets for the world championships go on sale on July 7th (according to an usher)..it's definitely worth the trip.

What happens in that tower?

What happens in that tower?

According to its website (https://hayward.uoregon.edu/tower):

Quote:The 10-story Hayward Field Tower pays tribute to the University of Oregon legacy with graphics depicting five Oregon track and field icons. Along with legendary coach Bill Bowerman, the tower depicts Steve Prefontaine, Raevyn Rogers, Ashton Eaton and Otis Davis.

...

The 10-story-tall landmark aligns with the east stands and features a lobby filled with interpretive exhibits, an observation deck and viewing areas. The observation deck is located on the level just under the crown, which features Bowerman and the unnamed athlete. The tower will also include office space for the UO track and field coaching staff.

Based on the updated IAAF World Rankings, it looks as if Ari is on her way to Tokyo. Allgood-Whetstone moved up only to #45, and she needed to be among the top 32 (I thought that she was going to move up more).

Congrats to her. I think she might be just the 2nd Rice Owls women's track and field athlete to compete for the USA Olympic track team (Funmi Jimoh being the other in 2016 in the long jump)? We've had several others for other countries, but those might be the only two Americans?
