RE: What was your favorite race at Hayward Field? The top pros share their favorite Hayward field memories
I was able to attend the 2008 Olympic Trials when they brought it back to Eugene for the first time since whenever. Like many young American runners, I grew up on the legend of Oregon, Pre, and Hayward. Being able to attend that Trials and see so many of my heroes in the stadium and just jogging around Eugene was a dream come true.
Anyways, my favorite race was the 2008 800m finals, the same as Nick Symmonds. I had a seat on the homestretch and the crowd when absolutely nuts when the three guys from Oregon qualified, especially the dive from Christian Smith. The victory lap was more like a victory miles. Just bonkers.
Queen Harrison's parents were sitting nearby, and it cool to be there when she qualified for the Olympics in the 400m hurdles.
