The U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials air live on NBC, NBCSN, NBCOlympics.com and Peacock from June 18-27 at the new Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.

In most events, the top three finishers are in line to qualify for Tokyo. The U.S. track and field team is always the largest of any sport — more than 120 athletes made it for Rio in 2016.

The headliners start with Allyson Felix, a nine-time Olympic medalist eyeing her fifth Games and first as a mom.

Felix, 35, entered both the 400m for the first weekend and the 200m for the second weekend in Eugene, seeking to tie the record for U.S. Olympic track and field appearances. She is ranked seventh in the U.S. this year in the 400m, where it’s expected that at least the top six will go to Tokyo for relays.

Sha’Carri Richardson, who was 4 years old when Felix made her Olympic debut, leads the new generation of sprinters. She clocked 10.72 seconds for 100m on April 10, the fastest time for an American woman in nearly 10 years. Richardson could make the team in both the 100m and the 200m.

Elsewhere, a showdown is expected in the 400m hurdles. The U.S. boasts the world’s six fastest women in this Olympic cycle, and four of them are entered, led by Dalilah Muhammad and Sydney McLaughlin, the two fastest in history.

In men’s events, world 200m champion Noah Lyles looks to qualify in the 100m and the 200m, five years after missing the Olympic team by one spot out of high school. Trayvon Bromell, a Rio Olympian who missed two years due to injuries, re-emerged in the last year to become the first Olympic 100m favorite of the post-Usain Bolt era.

The U.S. also has reigning world champions entered in DeAnna Price (hammer), Grant Holloway (110m hurdles), Donavan Brazier (800m), Sam Kendricks (pole vault) and Joe Kovacs (shot put, going up against reigning Olympic champion Ryan Crouser).

Ukraine Olympic champion auctions gold medals to support his country

Sprint canoeist Yuriy Cheban, Ukraine’s most decorated male Olympian, is auctioning his two gold medals and one bronze medal to support his country’s defense and recovery efforts amid the war with Russia.

“It was one of the best moments of my life that can be compared only with the birth of my child,” Cheban posted specifically about his repeat 200m gold at his last Olympics in Rio in 2016. “This Olympic finish left a great memory forever in the world history and in the hearts of Ukraine.

“Time to move on, I would like these medals to benefit Ukrainians once again.”

Cheban, a 36-year-old who coached Ukraine canoeists at the Tokyo Games, took 500m bronze in 2008 before his 200m golds in 2012 and 2016, all in individual races.

He and boxer Vasiliy Lomachenko are the only men to win two Olympic gold medals for Ukraine, which began competing independently in 1994. Cheban is the only man to win three total Olympic medals for Ukraine, according to Olympedia.org.

Swimmer Yana Klochkova won the most medals for Ukraine — four golds and five total.

All proceeds from the sales will go to Ukraine’s Olympic Circle charity, according to SCP Auctions.

Olympic Circle was created by sportsmen to help Mykolaiv, a city in southern Ukraine, fight Russian occupants, according to SCP.

Alpine skiing TV, live stream schedule for 2022-23 World Cup season

NBC Sports and Peacock combine to air live coverage of the 2022-23 Alpine skiing season, including races on the World Cup, which starts this weekend.

Coverage begins with the traditional season-opening giant slaloms in Soelden, Austria, this Saturday and Sunday, streaming live on Peacock.

The first of four stops in the U.S. — the most in 26 years — is Thanksgiving weekend with a women’s giant slalom and slalom in Killington, Vermont. The men’s tour visits Beaver Creek, Colorado the following week, as well as Palisades Tahoe, California, and Aspen, Colorado after worlds in Courchevel and Meribel, France.

NBC Sports platforms will broadcast all four U.S. stops in the Alpine World Cup season, plus four more World Cups in other ski and snowboard disciplines. All Alpine World Cups in Austria will stream live on Peacock.

Mikaela Shiffrin, who last year won her fourth World Cup overall title, is the headliner. Shiffrin, who has 74 career World Cup race victories, will try to close the gap on the only Alpine skiers with more: Lindsey Vonn (82) and Ingemar Stenmark (86). Shiffrin won an average of five times per season the last three years and is hopeful of racing more often this season.

On the men’s side, 25-year-old Swiss Marco Odermatt returns after becoming the youngest man to win the overall, the biggest annual prize in ski racing, since Marcel Hirscher won the second of his record eight in a row in 2013.
