2012 London Olympics: Track and Field Schedule for 8/7-8/11

Here is the rest of the schedule that could feature former Oregon Ducks athletes in track and field events. Ashton Eaton highlights the field with the men’s decathlon, featuring 10 different events in the span of two days. He comes in as the favorite in many eyes after breaking the record in the trials back in June.

Matthew Centrowitz has made the final of the men’s 1,500m and will look to medal in his first visit to the Olympics. Galen Rupp will be competing in the men’s 5,000m, his second event of the Olympics after picking up a silver medal in the 10,000m. Both the men’s and women’s javelin throw will have Cyrus Hostetler and Rachel Yurkovich, respectively, and Keshia Baker rounds it out by being a member on Team USA in the women’s 4x400m relay.
