The NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships get under way Wednesday at Hayward Field in Eugene.

Oregon has the likes of Dakotah Keys, Elijah Greer, Laura Roesler, Phyllis Francis, Mike Berry, Liz Brenner and English Gardner competing on Day 1.

The Ducks women, runners-up the past four years, are looking for their first title since 1985 and also are trying to win the triple crown -- the championship in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track. No women's team has ever achieved that feat.

Meanwhile, the UO men are looking for their first title since 1984.

Here's a look at all of the Ducks athletes competing Wednesday, plus several others with Oregon ties:

Leaders after Round of 32 in Oregon's Greatest Athlete Bracket Challenge

Published Jan 01, 0001

Two rounds of voting are in the books, and here's how those who entered our bracket challenge are faring so far.

Before voting started in the Round of 64 in the Oregon's Greatest Athlete contest, we invited readers to submit a bracket and play along.

We released the Round of 16 matchups earlier Friday, and voting for that round begins Monday.

More about this contest

How did we seed the bracket? Seeding was done via a combination of staff opinions and reader comments on previous posts. We also consulted a 1999 list of Oregon's top athletes prepared by Sports Illustrated.

What is the criteria to be included? Athletes must have been born, raised or attended high school in Oregon. That means some legendary college and pro athletes who came from out of state aren't listed here.

How did we come up with the list in the first place? The list sprang from a combination of staff and reader picks. We gave readers three opportunities to contribute, then chose our staff list before asking readers to vote on the final 14 spots in the bracket.
