Thus far in the Olympic track and field trials, sprinters Justin Gatlin and Allyson Felix have won spots on the U.S. Olympic team with world-best times in the men's 100-meters and women's 400-meter events. But there has been only heartbreak for other athletes.
Nick Symmonds, an 800-meter runner, pulled out with an ankle injury. Yesterday, in the women's 800-meter final, Alysia Montano and Brenda Martinez bumped each other near the end of the race and neither made the team. Here & Now's Robin Young talks to Tim Layden of Sports Illustrated, who is covering the trials in Eugene, Oregon.
