EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -Brittany Borman won the javelin at the U.S.
track trials with a throw of 201 feet, 9 inches, putting her on the
Olympic team Kara Patterson was second at 196-2, and Kimberly Hamilton
finished third with a throw of 190-5 at Hayward Field. Hamilton does not have the Olympic “A” standard of 200-1 this season to make the U.S. team for the London Games, so the third spot on the team went to fourth-place finisher, Rachel Yurkovich.
