EUGENE, Ore. -- USA Track and Field decided to make hammer throw the main event on Wednesday at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials, giving the sport a spotlight it rarely receives.Entrance fees were waived, the pit was brought to center field and the stands were engaged with interested -- and curious -- track fans. Before nearly every thrower, fans started a slow clap and, when personal bests were hit, the crowd erupted.And with that kind of attention, the women did not disappoint. All three top finishers broke the U.S. Olympic trials meet record, with two-time Olympian Amber Campbell picking up the win with a toss of 74.03 meters on her final attempt.We dont get to feel that kind of magic being out in the back field, Campbell said of Hayward Fields environment. So to be able to compete in the center, at Hayward, in the middle of the day with an amazing crowd -- theres nothing like it.Gwen Berry and Deanna Price rounded out the Olympic roster in the hammer throw with throws of 73.09 meters. Price, who won the NCAA title the last time she was at Hayward, said the atmosphere within the stadium was unlike any meet in which she had ever competed.Amazing, it was insane, Price said. People were doing the clap and I was like, Woah, wow, this has never happened before. And its likely that on the other side, fans were thinking the same thing. But when the women were crushing records and improving their world standing, there were plenty of reasons to cheer.A legend retires ... probablyAfter the competitors had cleared off the track Wednesday, only one thing was left: A.G. Krugers shoes in the middle of the hammer circle.A giant -- in both the physical and metaphorical sense -- leaving behind a piece of his athletic career at the place that probably saw the final event of his career.The 13-time USATF national champion and three-time Olympian had failed to make the top three. On top of that, no American had thrown the Olympic A standard, threatening an Olympic hammer throw showing without an American.It has been an amazing ride to do something like this, to represent the country, Kruger said through tears. I thought Id chance this dream one more time, but I fell a little short. It sucks right now. A lot of emotions right now. At some point it has to come to an end. This is where its at.With 10 open spots at the Olympics in the hammer throw, the IAAF could still pick up to 10 competitors to attend the games. Krugers fourth-place showing at trials isnt a huge boost to his résumé, but he still holds the second-best throw by an American in 2016.Previewing Thursdays finalsThree finals are on Thursdays schedule, all on the womens side -- shot put, triple jump and the 3,000-meter steeplechase.Two collegians are set to return to Hayward to defend their NCAA titles -- Georgias Keturah Orji in the triple jump and Mississippis Raven Saunders in the shot put.Orji is favored in her event, having set the best mark of American jumpers in 2016 -- 47 feet, 8 inches, which she set at the NCAA Track & Field Championships in June. She had the best jump in the prelims, but probably will see tighter competition from Andrea Geubelle, Christina Epps and Imani Oliver.I was really excited about competing for USA at World Indoors, Orji said. It was my first meet against pros and everything. I was really happy with the way I did, and Im looking forward to improving even more.Saunders is defending both the 2015 and 2016 NCAA titles in the shot put, but two-time Olympian Michelle Carter continues to set the bar in the event. Her throw of 20.21 meters (66 feet, 3? inches) is the farthest by an American woman in 2016.The day will conclude with the 3,000 steeplechase, featuring Emma Coburn and Shalaya Kipp, veterans who were both a part of the 2012 Olympic team. But newbies such as Leah OConnor and Colleen Quigley, both 2015 college graduates who are racing in their first trials, are working to make their first Olympic roster.OConnor recently wrote about the journey from collegian to Olympic hopeful on her personal blog. She explained that even though she has the second-fastest time by an American woman in 2016, the question Are you going to Rio? is actually a very loaded one.Making an Olympic team is NOT based on a point system in the United States. We have one day in early July to make it happen, OConnor wrote. Nobody is guaranteed a spot. It takes so much hard work, focus, balance ... and a lot of luck. So to answer the question again: yes, home-dogs ... I am training for the Olympic Trials. I am doing everything in my power and working with my incredible coach to give myself the best shot on that one day in July.Its what everyone has been working toward. So far, 60 Americans have punched their tickets to Rio. But for OConnor and several others competing in finals Thursday, July 7 is finally here. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys .
