Olympic Trials Final Scorecard

With the much hoped-for women’s 100 meter runoff now officially kaput, the Olympic team for track and field is finalized (not counting relays).

If you want to take a look at the team, Track and Field News has a full accounting of the men and women.

I’ve put together a spreadsheet with all kids of info about every Olympian: sponsor and/or club (if any), college they competed for, current residence, hometown (as determined by high school), coach and agent.

So let’s summarize. In terms of number of Olympians, who leads various categories?

    Aren’t both Christian Taylor (TJ) and Justin Gatlin (100m) sponsored by Li-Ning?

  2. tracksuperfan says:

    So far as I know, Gatlin isn’t sponsored by anyone.

  3. Brian says:

    Great breakdown T&F Superfan!

  4. Martin says:

    Great work Jesse. Gatlin is sponsored by Xtep, no Li-ning. That is the logo on his speedsuit. There are a few press releases floating around the internet and SI also mentioned it in their article last week: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/olympics/2012/writers/tim_layden/06/24/tyson-gay-justin-gatlin/index.html
