Eugene: USA Track and Field officials and US Olympic coaches are confident of achieving their goal of a 30-medal haul from the London Olympics after watching competitors qualify over the past 10 days.
"There's a real opportunity for that," US Olympic men's track coach Andrew Valmon said. "We have a strong team. If we are clicking on all cylinders anything is possible."
A blend of talented veterans, some hoping for a return to the medal podium, and top newcomers advancing from the US Olympic Track and Field Trials staged at Hayward Field give the Americans a chance to improve on 2008 disappointment.
