2020 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials Rescheduled After Olympic Postponement

The 2020 U.S. Olympic track and field trials in Eugene, Ore. will be rescheduled in the aftermath of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics being postponed to 2021, organizers from Track Town USA announced Tuesday afternoon.

The IOC announced the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo would be "rescheduled to a date beyond 2020, but not later than summer 2021, to safeguard the health of the athletes, everybody involved in the Olympic Games and the international community.” The decision came after months of mounting pressure and outcry for athletes training amid the coronavirus pandemic. There are more than 399,500 confirmed cases of the virus globally across at least 166 countries.
