The NCAA Division I Track and Field Championships kicked off Wednesday at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, for the first time since the historic stadium underwent major construction in 2018.
This year’s meet offers athletes the opportunity for redemption after the 2020 championships were cancelled due to COVID-19. For some, the meet will also serve as a stepping stone for the USATF Olympic Trials that begin June 18. The trials will also be held at Hayward Field.
The championships will be run through Saturday and can be streamed live on ESPN3. Select events will also be aired on ESPN2 and ESPNU. A full schedule of events can be found .
