My brother Jeff and I have traveled to the Olympic Trials together in the past and I received media credentials for seven Olympic Trials and went to Eugene three times.  In 1996 at the Atlanta Trials I meet photographer Victor Sailor and since I will not be going to Eugene this year he will provide photos from the Trials and they will be posted on RUNOHIO - https://www.runohio.com/index.php/photos/2024
