STAMFORD, Conn. – June 20, 2024 – Noah Lyles, Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone, Ryan Crouser, and Sha’Carri Richardson headline NBC Olympics’ live coverage of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Track & Field beginning this Friday, June 21, at 6:30 p.m. ET on USA Network and Peacock, live from historic Hayward Field at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Ore. The Team USA Olympic track & field roster is routinely one of the hardest to qualify for, with the U.S. leading the medal count at eight consecutive Olympics.

The top three athletes in each event qualify for the Paris Olympics, so long as they have also hit the Olympic standard qualifying time/mark.

On the men’s side, Team USA is highlighted by Tokyo Olympic 200m bronze medalist and six-time world champion Noah Lyles, coming off a historic 2023 season that saw him become the first man since Usain Bolt to win the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay at a single World Championships. The 200m U.S. record holder heads into the Trials coming off a dominant win at the NYC Grand Prix earlier this month but will face competitive fields in the 100m and 200m. The men’s 100m is expected to feature the last three 100m world champions in Lyles, Tokyo Olympic 100m silver medalist Fred Kerley, and 2019 world champion Christian Coleman, while the 200m is expected to see Tokyo Olympic 200m silver medalist Kenny Bednarek. The U.S. has taken five of six possible men’s 200m medals at the last two World Championships, including a sweep in 2022.

Reigning Tokyo Olympic 400m hurdles gold medalist and world record holder Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone headlines the women’s team and is expected to compete in her signature event, the 400m hurdles. After missing the 2023 World Championships due to injury, the 2022 400m hurdles world champion ran a blistering 48.75 in the open 400m at the NYC Grand Prix earlier this month – just .05 off Sanya Richards-Ross’ American record of 48.70 set in 2006 – and looks to qualify for her third Olympic team and become the first woman to win consecutive 400m hurdle Olympic titles.

Reigning 100m world champion Sha’Carri Richardson, after winning the 100m at the prestigious Prefontaine Classic in May, looks to make Team USA and compete in her first Olympics. The U.S. star is coming off a career year that also saw her anchor the winning 4x100m relay and earn a bronze medal in the 200m at the World Championships.

More notable athletes expected to compete in Eugene include reigning two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time world shot put champion and world record holder Ryan Crouser, aiming for a third consecutive Olympic team and gold medal, two-time Olympic medalist Gabby Thomas, reigning Olympic 800m gold medalist Athing Mu, Tokyo Olympic 400m hurdles silver medalist and American record holder Rai Benjamin, two-time decathlon world medalist Anna Hall, reigning Olympic pole vault gold medalist and two-time world champion Katie Moon, reigning Olympic discus gold medalist Valarie Allman, and Tokyo Olympic 100m hurdles silver medalist Keni Harrison.

On the distance side, Elle St. Pierre is expected to contest the 1500m/5,000m double; the 2024 world indoor 3000m champion has had a strong season after giving birth to her first child last year. U.S. mile record holder Yared Nuguse, U.S. 5,000m/10,000m record holder Grant Fisher, 2024 indoor world 1500m silver medalist Cole Hocker, U.S. indoor 5,000m record holder Elise Cranny, and Tokyo Olympian Karissa Schweizer all aim to qualify for their second consecutive Olympic teams. Matthew Centrowitz, who in 2016 became the first American to win Olympic 1500m gold in 108 years, has a chance to qualify for his fourth consecutive Olympic team in what he has said will be his final season. Additionally, rising stars such as 2024 indoor world 1500m bronze medalist Hobbs Kessler and six-time NCAA individual champion Parker Valby (Florida) could very well make their first Olympic squads.

“I’m beyond excited to watch the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials and see Team USA competitors earn their tickets to Paris,” said NBC Sports analyst and two-time Olympian Kara Goucher. “There are so many incredible athlete storylines that fans are going to see themselves in. I can’t wait to help tell these stories and let the athletes shine!”
