EUGENE, Ore.-With swirling winds again for the finals, ORU junior Jack Whitt was tripped up and finished eighth overall in the finals of the U.S. Olympic Trials, Thursday.

Whitt's mark of 18-0.5 (5.50m) put him eighth overall, and although not all of those ahead of him had hit the Olympic "A" standard, enough had to keep Whitt off the team.

Because he had hit the standard before the trials, Whitt has been selected as an alternate for Team USA. Brad Walker, Jeremy Scott and Derek Miles, all of whom compete for Nike, finished first, second and fourth, respectively, to punch their tickets to London.

ORU will have representatives in the 2012 London Olympics though, as women's basketball alum Dominique Allen will play for Great Britain and track alum Prince Mumba will compete in the 800m run for his native Zambia.
