The rooms in Tokyo practically had their names on them. Instead, others will be taking the spots that seemed all but reserved for two American track champions, Jenny Simpson and Donavan Brazier. The cold realities of the U.S. Olympic qualifying reared their ugly head on a scorcher of a day at track and field trials Monday.
(Reuters) -World champion Donavan Brazier's Olympic dreams were shattered on Monday as the overwhelming favourite in the men's 800 metres suffered a shock defeat in Eugene, Oregon in make-or-break U.S. trials that pushed the sport's top athletes to the brink. The 24-year-old American record holder seemed all but assured of a spot on Team USA heading into Eugene, Oregon, this week but ran out of gas with 200 metres to go, finishing dead last with a time of 1:47.88 as he was forced to relive the disappointment of the 2016 trials, where he also came up short. Clayton Murphy, 26, who picked up bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympics, won in a blistering, world-leading 1:43.17.
