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).

Eliud Kipchoge breaks marathon world record in Berlin

Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge broke his own world record in winning the Berlin Marathon, clocking 2:01:09 to lower the previous record time of 2:01:39 he set in the German capital in 2018.

Kipchoge, 37 and a two-time Olympic champion, earned his 15th win in 17 career marathons to bolster his claim as the greatest runner in history over 26.2 miles.

His pacing was not ideal. Kipchoge slowed in the final miles, running 61:18 for the second half after going out in an unprecedented 59:51 for the first 13.1 miles. He still won by 4:49 over Kenyan Mark Korir.

“I was planning to go through it [the halfway mark] 60:50, 60:40,” Kipchoge said. “My legs were running actually very fast. I thought, let me just try to run two hours flat, but all in all, I am happy with the performance.

“We went too fast [in the first half]. It takes energy from the muscles. … There’s still more in my legs [to possibly lower the record again].”

Ethiopian Tigist Assefa won the women’s race in 2:15:37, the third-fastest time in history for somebody who ran one prior marathon in 2:34:01. Only Brigid Kosgei (2:14:14 in Chicago in 2019) and Paula Radcliffe (2:15:25 in London in 2003) have gone faster.

American record holder Keira D’Amato, who entered as the top seed, was sixth in 2:21:48. D’Amato, who went nearly a decade between competitive races after college, owns the American record of 2:19:12 and now also the 10th-best time in U.S. history.

“Today wasn’t my best day ever, but it was the best I could do today,” she said in a text message, according to Race Results Weekly, adding that she briefly stopped and walked late in the race.

The last eight instances the men’s marathon world record has been broken, it has come on the pancake-flat roads of Berlin. It began in 2003, when Kenyan Paul Tergat became the first man to break 2:05.

The world record was 2:02:57 — set by Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2014 — until Kipchoge broke it for the first time four years ago.

The following year, Kipchoge became the first person to cover 26.2 miles in under two hours, clocking 1:59:40 in a non-record-eligible showcase rather than a race.

Kipchoge’s focus going forward is trying to become the first runner to win three Olympic marathon titles in Paris in 2024. He also wants to win all six annual World Marathon Majors. He’s checked off four of them, only missing Boston (run in April) and New York City (run every November).

Kipchoge grew up on a farm in Kapsabet in Kenya’s Rift Valley, often hauling by bike several gallons of the family’s milk to sell at the local market. Raised by a nursery school teacher, he ran more than three miles to and from school. He saved for five months to get his first pair of running shoes.

At 18, he upset legends Hicham El Guerrouj and Kenenisa Bekele to win the 2003 World 5000m title on the track. He won Olympic 5000m medals (bronze in 2004 and silver in 2008), then moved to the marathon after failing to make the 2012 Olympic team on the track.

The U.S. goes for its fourth consecutive title at the FIBA World Cup in Sydney — and eighth global gold in a row overall when including the Olympics.

A’ja Wilson, a two-time WNBA MVP, and Breanna Stewart, the Tokyo Olympic MVP, headline a U.S. roster that, for the first time since 2000, includes neither Sue Bird (retired) nor Diana Taurasi (injured).

The new-look team includes nobody over the age of 30 for the first time since 1994, before the U.S. began its dynasty at the 1996 Atlanta Games. The Americans have won 52 consecutive games between worlds and the Olympics dating to the 2006 Worlds bronze-medal game.

The field also includes host Australia, the U.S.’ former primary rival, and Olympic silver medalist Japan.

Nigeria, which played the U.S. the closest of any foe in Tokyo (losing by nine points), isn’t present after its federation withdrew the team over governance issues. Spain, ranked second in the world, failed to qualify.
