Top action for free Friday
EUGENE (USA): Oregonlive writes a big thumbs up for Nike, which underwrites the two-day Prefontaine Classic, and for the past several years has made the Friday night portion of the meet free to spectators. Free is a very good price, particularly this year, says oregonlive. Galen Rupp will be chasing his own US record in the 10 000 m and high school talent Mary Cain will be opening her season in Friday night's women's 800 m. Also discus women with Olympic and World winner Sandra Perkovic, shot put men with world leader Christian Cantwell and top women long jump (Reese, Klishina, Spanovic, Proctor, Lesueur) will be staged on Friday

(Editor's note: Celebrating it's 40th anniversary, the Pre Classic has gone to a two day format, with Friday night free. This year, the shot put, the discus, the 800 meters and the 10,000 meters are all happening on Friday night. If you are in Eugene, do not miss it! )
