This is exciting for Eugene, the USA, IAAF and the sport. No place loves track and field more than Eugene, Oregon. I've been there for many USATF championship and Olympic Trials and the atmosphere is just plain "electric" at times. Eugene offers something that nowhere else can, passionate local fans, excited visitors and athletes who appreciate the attention they receive. Eugene's plans for Hayward Field are to begin a build-out of the Wast grandstands as soon as late July this Summer. By the time the World Championships are held, the permanent stadium will be around 20,000, with 10-12,000 temporary bleachers. The ruse that there is not enough housing for visitors is just that. I have noticed on my last few visits that there has been a building boom in Eugene with numerous new hotels and high rise student housing buildings that will be vacant during the Summer of the World Championships. I just recently saw a report that Hyatt, Hilton and a few others are breaking ground for new hotels there. On top of that, Portland, just over an hour away has many thousands of upscale rooms. It takes longer than that to travel 10 miles many days in LA and other larger cities. Exciting stuff having this event in Eugene, and I'd buy my tickets today if they were available.
