Eugene gets on fast track for five years of big meets

    Craig Masback, head of USA Track & Field, announced the decision in a news conference at the Bowerman Family Building, adjacent to the University of Oregon’s newly-refurbished Hayward Field.

    Eugene and UO already had been awarded the 2008 Olympic Trials, to be held June 27-July 6, and the 2010 NCAA Division I championships.
