After making it through the rest day at the midway point of the Olympic Trials, the action returns today at Hayward Field. Today will be a more unique schedule as no races on the track will be run.
If you like watching people run in circles at a really fast speed, you'll have to wait until tomorrow. However, if you like watching people spin in circles and throw a heavy metal ball on a cable, you're in luck, because today we’ve got six-plus hours of hammer throw action.
The day will start with the women’s hammer throw qualifying rounds at 1:00 pm, followed by the finals at 3:00 pm. The men’s hammer throw qualifying rounds start at 5:00 pm with finals at 7:00 pm. In total, 48 athletes will be competing today. You can see the full start list here.
