WALNUT (USA): In a ruling that could jeopardize the 2020 Olympic track and field team trials at Mt. San Antonio College, a judge has ordered a halt to earth-moving work on the Hilmer Lodge Stadium project. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John Torribio granted the City of Walnut's request for a preliminary injunction. Scheduled for June 19-28, 2020, the Mt. SAC trials follow three editions held at the University of Oregon (2008, 2012 and 2016) and two at Sacramento State (2000 and 2004). Mt. SAC beat out 2020 bids from Oregon and Sacramento. But if Mt. SAC can't host the meet, Oregon might not either, according to recent reporting in the Portland Oregonian due to necessary renovations of Hayward Field for 2021 World Championships. Informs
