2012 U.S. Track & Field Trials: Amy Hastings Wins Women's 10,000m

Amy Hastings won the Women's 10,000m at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Track and Field in Eugene, Ore., crossing the finish line in 31:58.36 after a wild back-and-forth over the final stretch.

Natosha Rogers finished second (31:59.21) and Shalane Flanagan (31:59.69) was right behind her in third place. HOWEVER, Rogers does not have an "A" standard to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics, and Flanagan, the Beijing silver medalist, is not running the 10,000m in London (choosing instead to focus on the marathon; she won the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials).

So taking their spots on Team USA in the women's 10,000m are 24-year-old Lisa Uhl (4th place, 32:03.46) and Janet Cherobon-Bawcom (7th place, 32:17.06).

And just for fun, it's worth noting that Flanagan ran a marathon as part of training on Monday, and then went out and finished third in the 10,000m Friday night. It should be fun to watch her in the Olympic Marathon.

The women's 10,000m final at the 2012 Summer Olympics is scheduled for Aug. 3.
