The U.S. Olympic Trials have been postponed on Sunday afternoon due to heat in Eugene.

According to sources, the events will start at 8:30 p.m., with running events starting at 9:00 p.m.

The heat in Eugene is what caused the delay, with temperatures exceeding 105 degrees at the moment in Tracktown, USA.

The temperature is not expected to get much better later in the night, which is still projected to be 99 degrees at 9 p.m. However, that is at least manageable for athletes.

The men’s 5,000m final was rescheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Sunday in order to beat the heat. The two athletes with Oregon Duck ties were unable to make it to the U.S. Olympic Team, with Cooper Teare placing 4th, and Eric Jenkins coming in 10th.
