Felix's double hopes gone, teen hurdler in

Winning the 400 metres in Rio is Allyson Felix's new Olympic goal after disappointment in Oregon.

Four-time Olympic gold medallist Felix had been hoping to contest both the 200m and 400m at next month's Games in Brazil, with the IAAF having agreed to a change of the timetable earlier this year to allow athletes the opportunity to double up following a request from USATF.

When Sunday's event had finally wrapped up, an orange foam massage roller tucked under her right arm, Raisman made her exit from the competition area with waves and then an ultra-quick smile before disappearing behind a curtain to wait for the decision.

"I'm dreaming right now".

"Coming in, I just wanted to come and get some experience and just have fun", Weeks told reporters in Eugene. "She's the truth. I was in every single heat with her and she carries herself like a pro and I know she will represent the United States of America amazingly".

"It's just incredible because she's so strong", Douglas said of Raisman.

Molly Huddle became the first athlete to complete the women's 5000m and 10,000m double at the US Olympic trials, clocking 15:05.01 in the shorter event to add to her win over the longer distance the weekend before.

"We were joking, I was like, 'I really am going to live up to my grandma name because I'm going to have a heart attack before they announce the names, '" Raisman said of the excruciating minutes before the five gymnasts got final word.

Sydney, who turns 17 on Aug 7 during the Games, held her nerve to clinch third place in the 400m hurdles in a junior world record of 54.15sec. "Then she made the next bar, but started crying again". But 16-year-old Sydney McLaughlin, who finished third, dominated the headlines. Taliyah Brooks, a Razorbacks sophomore, wasn't able to finish the heptatlon. "She's taken it all stride by stride, and it's helped her to train with Sandi".

Douglas' tipsy show on the beam surprisingly didn't stop US gymnastics officials from naming her to the five-member team that will be favored to defend its Olympic title next month in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Bowie also will run in the women's 100 meters in Rio after she finished third in that event at the Olympic Trials last week.

Olympic champion Allyson Felix stunningly failed to make the USA team for Rio in her favourite event, the 200 metres, as her dreams for a rare sprint Olympic double ended at the American trials yesterday.

"Honestly, I'm disappointed", said Felix. "But it's better to get it out of the way now than in Rio".

According to The Hattiesburg American, Bowie is the fourth former Southern Miss track and field star to qualify for the Olympics. In the men's high jump, Olympic silver medalist Erik Kynard won his fourth consecutive national title, clearing 2.29m.

That gives OR a total of 11 current and former track and field athletes heading to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics. But with more free time on her hands than originally planned.
