Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore., is a 16,500-seat paradise for track and field. North Dakota State junior Laura Hermanson is treating it like a 16,500-foot roller coaster.


It's been one exciting climb after another.

"It's been a pretty big joy ride," she said.

The ride continues tonight in the finals of the 800-meter run in the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials. Three of the 12 survivors earn bids to the Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
