EUGENE (USA): informs that US Olympic Trials 110 m hurdles winner Devon Allen has no small goals. As he prepares for the world stage, his goal is clear: "I'm going for the gold. People always talk about medaling, you know, go and medal. But I always just think about winning," Allen said. "Obviously, I want to win the gold medal. Any medal would be cool, but I'm going for the gold, for sure." It has been a long road to the Olympics for Allen, who also is a wide receiver on the Oregon football team. Oregon football practice begins August 8, which means Allen will miss much of fall camp. But Allen said that coach Mark Helfrich and the rest of the football team have been supportive of him throughout his journey. Depending how things go at the Olympics, Allen might have to decide between playing football at Oregon and turning pro as a track athlete.
