Here’s Who Made Team USA After Eight Days Of Competition At The 2024 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials

The ones we expected, the shocking triumphs, and the devastating shortfalls.

Last Updated:

After eight days of fierce competition, the 2024 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials have come to an end.

The reigning men’s and women’s 100m world champions, Noah Lyles and Sha’Carri Richardson, both clinched their spots on the team as expected.

American standout Elle St. Pierre has been having a dreamy season. Her winning ways continued after she took a close victory in the 5,000m and followed that up with a third place in the 1,500m. However, despite qualifying for both the 5,000m and 1,500m, St. Pierre and her coach have confirmed that she will only be running the 1,500m at the Olympics.

Although the trials were filled with expected results, there were a number of unexpected triumphs and devastating letdowns. 

Reigning World Athletics and Olympic 800m champion Athing Mu suffered a fall early in the 800m final and finished outside the top three, meaning she won’t be returning to defend her title.

The final event of the trials, the 400m hurdles featured Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone, one of the best and most consistent American athletes in history. The defending Olympic champion and world-record holder in the women’s 400m hurdles delivered a stunning performance. While it was no surprised she took the win, it was her style and result that left the crowd in shock, as she ran solo and broke her own world record with a time of 50.65.

Women’s 10,000m Confusion

The 10,000m was both thrilling and a source of confusion for many spectators.

While in most events, the top three earn their spot in Paris, this isn’t exactly the case (yet) in the women’s 10,000m. Currently, only Weini Kelati has guaranteed her spot in the Olympic 10,000m, while runner-up Parker Valby and third-place Karissa Schweizer will have to rely on the Road to Paris list, a confusing points-based rubric used by World Athletics to fill out start lists for the Games.



The Olympic 10,000m race has only 27 slots, and the automatic qualifying time is a blistering 30:40—a mark reached by only six Americans. Consequently, Valby and Schweizer need to qualify through world ranking, which is a realistic possibility.
