The meet starts Thursday and runs through Sunday.
Nicholas Symmonds of Springfield, the Willamette University graduate who won the Olympic qualifier in the 800m in Eugene in 2008, is the top seed this year. His 2008 Olympic teammate, former Duck Andrew Wheating, qualifed for the championships but is declared as "scratched" on USA Track and Field's entry list for the 800.
But Wheating will compete as the top seed in the Men's 1500M, racing for Nike and Oregon Track Club Elite. The top 5 seeds in the race are all affiliated with Nike.
Symmonds is also listed as competitor in the 1500, as is former Sudanese "lost boy" turned U.S. Olympian Lopez Lomong.
