The 2020 United States Olympic Trials for track and field were held in Eugene, Oregon, after an initial bid for Hilmer Lodge Stadium in Walnut, California failed. [1] This was the first major event for the redesigned and rebuilt Hayward Field. [2]

Organized by USA Track and Field and TrackTown USA, the ten-day competition was originally scheduled for June 19–28, 2020, but was rescheduled to June 18–27, 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the postponement of the 2020 Summer Olympics to 2021. It is serving as the national championships in track and field for the United States. [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

The results of the event determined qualification for the American Olympic team at the 2020 Summer Olympics, to be held in Tokyo. Provided they had achieved the Olympic standard or are in the World Athletics ranking quota, the top three athletes in each event gained a place on the Olympic team. In the event that a leading athlete did not hold the standard, or an athlete withdrew, the next highest finishing athlete with the standard was selected instead. USA Track and Field announced their Olympic roster based on these guidelines on July 6, 2021. [8]

The trials for the men's and women's marathon were held on February 29, 2020 in Atlanta [9] and the trials for the men's 50 km race walk were held on January 25, 2020 at San Diego Christian College and the Santee Town Center station in Santee, California.

Multiple rising high school and collegiate track athletes such as Nico Young, Erriyon Knighton, Hobbs Kessler, and Sha'Carri Richardson participated in the trials. Multiple world-leads, US records, and world records were broken during the trials such as Sydney McLaughlin's 400m hurdles WR of 51.90 during the finals, Erriyon Knighton's U-18 and U-20 200m record of 19.84 in the finals, and Ryan Crouser's shot put WR of 23.37m.

Qualification

USA Track & Field sets minimum performances standards for entry into the national championships. In order to merit entry into the championships, an athlete must meet that standard, or better, within a set time frame prior to the competition.

All qualifying performances for the U.S. Olympic Trials must be attained on a standard outdoor track in the period

or on an indoor track, in the same event, in the period

except for the 10,000 meters, Decathlon & Heptathlon and 20 km Race Walks, whose qualifying period is from

The qualifying performance for the men's 50 km Race Walk must be attained in the period

[15]

There are also automatic qualifying criteria outside of the entry standards. Athletes who are the reigning indoor or outdoor national champion are automatically qualified to enter that event.

Qualifying marks must be attained in a 2020 U.S. Olympic Trials event. No qualifying marks will be allowed using alternate events, except for the men's Mile run as follows: An appeal to use a Mile qualifying mark for the 1500 will be accepted only if the mile mark was made during the 2020 season, from Wednesday, January 1, 2020 through Sunday, June 6, 2021, and the mark is 3:54.00 or better. [16]

For events over distances from 100 m to 800 m, performances will only be accepted if fully automatic timing (FAT) is used. For performances beyond that distance, FAT times are also used, but in the event that the athlete has not recorded a FAT performance, a manually recorded time may be used. There will be no adjustment for marks made at altitude. Wind-assisted performances will not be accepted for 2020 U.S. Olympic Trials qualifying.
