Hayward Field hosts a "Harlem Shake"-down

EUGENE, Ore. - Fans decked out in crazy costumes joined Olympic track athletes at Hayward Field on Wednesday to make a TrackTown USA version of the "Harlem Shake" dance video.

"Hanging out, getting a little exercise and dancing at Hayward Field," Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton said. "People are just having fun, and it's a reason to get outside on a gloomy day, and dance around, dress up crazy."

His former Duck teammate and fellow Olympian Andrew Wheating joined in the fun, too, as participants tried to live up to the TrackTown motto of the "best time ever."

The final cut of the video is expected on YouTube within a few days.
