Final Preview:

The name to know in the men's 20k race walk is Tervor Barron. Barron is truly a world class walker and looks to improve on his 23rd place finish at last year's world championships. The most decorated racewalker in American history, Tim Seamon will need to dig deep to chase after Barron and the Olympic standard. He currently holds 10 different American records and a trip to London would be a great way to cap a historic career.


How to make the Olympic Team?

Top three athletes with the Olympic A Standard will make Team USA. If there is only one athlete with the Olympic A Standard than the top athlete at the Olympic Trials with an A or B Standard will make the Olympic Team.
