George C. Griffin Track and Field Facility - Atlanta, GA
The George C. Griffin Track & Field Facility is the track for today, and can be found on the Georgia Institute of Technology campus in Atlanta. Two veteran Team USA members called this track home while in competing college. Chaunte Lowe will represent the US in the high jump, after winning the event at the Olympic trials, making it her fifth national outdoor title. And Angelo Taylor qualified for his fourth Olympic team in the 400m hurdles. Taylor, the Olympic champ in 2000 and 2008, looked dominant at the trials (until the 9th hurdle of the finals) and is one of the favorites in London. Being a masters sprinter myself, I love seeing guys in their 30’s competing at this level, especially in what could arguably be the toughest race on the track.
