Top track athletes from Special Olympics Oregon have been invited to the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene. A men's and a women's team composed of eight athletes each will put on a 100-yard-dash exhibition at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon between noon and 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 5, at the Trials. Most of these athletes competed at State Summer Games June 28 and 29. Athletes throughout the Special Olympics Oregon track and field program competed for spots on these rosters. Above, Robert Neyland, of Multnomah County, fourth from left, will compete in the 100 meter sprint on Hayward Field this weekend. For more information go to www.soor.org.
