Mt Sac loses 2020 Olympic Trials uscvball Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 3,444 Likes Received: 4,629 May 1, 2018 #1 Okay, so it's not USC related but I figure resident track fans might find it interesting. "Mt. San Antonio College Athletic Director of Special Events Doug Todd received a call from USA Track and Field officials Monday morning. Track and field’s national governing body wanted to talk to Mt. SAC about the 2020 Olympic Trials, which were awarded to the Walnut community college last June. It was noon when Todd and other top staff sitting in an athletic department office finally got the bad news: USATF was pulling the Olympic Trials from Mt. SAC and reopening bidding for the event. In a move that stunned Mt. SAC and American track and field, USATF’s board of directors voted unanimously to take the Olympic Trials from Walnut, citing ongoing litigation involving the college’s $87 million renovation project that includes Hilmer Lodge Stadium.... Eugene, the self-proclaimed Tracktown USA and host of six Olympic Trials including the last three Trials, is the frontrunner in a reopened bid process that USATF said it hopes to complete by June." https://www.ocregister.com/2018/05/01/mt-sac-loses-2020-olympic-track-and-field-trials/ Damn. If the Olympics are going to be in LA.....the trials should be local IMO. Couldn't USC and ucla manage to submit a plan to use our stadiums jointly?
