Well, the outdoor season has started and the marks are starting to fall quickly! An American record in the 10,000 meters in her debut, Shalane Flanagan now has three ARs to her name ( 3k indoors and 5k outdoors).

Check out the names, some familiar, some not. It will be a true changing of the guard in 2008, as the new young guns and the more seasoned veterans clash in the greatest track and field meet on the planet, the US Olympic Trials for Track & Field.
