One of the finest athletic events every 4 years is the U.S. Olympic Trials. The thrill of victory and agony of defeat, the line from ABC sports for decades, is seen day in and day out. I have gone to most Trials since 1980 (well, missed 1988), and watched each one since 1972. Truth is, in some Olympic years, the US Trials is still the best athletic meet of the year.
Do not miss it!
