RRWLos Angeles To Host 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials

The 2016 Olympic Trials Marathon will be in Los Angeles. Reportedly, a USATF panel voted 5-0 to put the Trials in Houston, but that recommendation was ignored by USATF CEO Max Siegel. One big change, likely because of the panel favoring Houston, was the date of the LA Marathon (and the Trials) being moved to the middle of February, so athletes could double back to the Track Trials.

The Dartmouth senior is on a roll in 2014, leading the NCAAs in the mile, but it was not an easy ride to the top. Freshman year, he quit the Dartmouth team and was flunking his courses; now he’s going to have his pick of schools for his fifth year, unless he takes an LRC internship.
