Organizers of the USA Olympic Team Trials – Track & Field announced that their competition, scheduled for June 19 – 28 in Eugene, would be rescheduled.
“TrackTown USA is now working with our partners at USA Track & Field and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee on rescheduling the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Track & Field,” said TrackTown USA CEO Michael Reilly through a media release.
Several sporting federations and fans have also called on the IOC to postpone the games because of the coronavirus, which has killed over 19,600 people worldwide.
The virus caused many qualifying events to be postponed or cancelled in the last two months. Some athletes are unable to train due to the containment measures in their country.
“Although it is not yet clear how long it may take to finalize a new date for the event, our Local Organizing Committee stands ready to welcome the best athletes in the country to the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field once a decision is reached.”
