Day 1: 5 things to watch

#1  Men’s 10,000-meter final

In what we believe is a first for track and field in the U.S., the men’s 10,000-meter final goes off at 8:35 p.m. with musical accompaniment from the UO Brass & Percussion Ensemble. Conductor Brian McWhorter composed an original score for the entire 25-lap race.

#2 Men’s 110-meter high hurdles

Round one of the men’s 110-meter high hurdles will set the stage for an ongoing battle between the world’s top two junior hurdlers – France’s Wilhelm Belocian and Great Britain’s David Omoregie.

#3 Sofi Flink in the Women’s javelin

Sweden’s Sofi Flink, the reigning world junior champion in the javelin, opens defense of her title with qualifying rounds. She is the Swedish record-holder at 203 feet, 3 inches.

#4 Decathlon & Heptathlon

It’s Day One of the multi-events. Jiri Sykora, of the Czech Republic, is the favorite in the decathlon, and Cuba’s Yorgelis Rodriguez is the defending champion in the heptathlon.

#5 University of Oregon athletes

Three University of Oregon signees are in action today: Ashlee Moore in the heptathlon; Raevyn Rogers in the 800 meters and Ariana Washington in the 100 meters.
