2016 USATF Olympic Trials Day 2 Thread

Day two is basically a higher stakes version of day one with some decathlon thrown in for good measure.

The schedule starts earlier today than it does during the entire trials, which I can only assume is on account of some strange decathlon rules.

TV/Streaming Information and Schedule:

5:55 pm: Decathlon 400m

The women's 10,000m feels pretty wide open after Molly Huddle. Shalane Flanagan's move up to the marathon creates a bit of a power vacuum up top that. Quick prediction: Huddle, Marielle Hall, Emily Sisson.

With so many big names not advancing in the 400 and 800m yesterday, all the big remaining names have a relatively obstruction-less path to the finals. The only exception to that rule is the second heat of the women's 800m, from which the top three gain automatic spots in the finals (the next two fastest get in on time). That heat includes Brenda Martinez, Molly Ludlow, Alysia Montano, Chanelle Price and Raevyn Rogers. Look for that to be the fast heat with them all recognizing that there is a real possibility of being left out of the final.
