The 2000 and 2004 Olympic Trials were two of my favorite events, period. Great competitions, great fans, great venues, and terrific performances.

The 1995 US Champs, also held in Sacramento, was a fantastic meet.
And now, Max Siegel, CEO of USA Track & Field announces that the 2014 USA Outdoor Championships are going to Sacramento, California.
Well, I have just three words to communicate to Mr. Siegel:
Well done, Max.
Few other cities in the U.S., besides Eugene, can put together well-run, well- attended US championships. Sacramento is one of few. Perhaps it is because they realize that, no matter what the venue, one must convince even the most die-hard track fans that four to six days of track & field for a U.S. champs is a worthy vacation that summer.
