Reigning high jump world champion Jesse Williams was one of four men tied with the best jump at U.S. Olympic Trials, which was just barely good enough for him to sneak onto the Olympic team. The United States is only allowed to send three representatives in the high jump, and none of the four men at the top of the standings in Eugene reached the Olympic 'A' qualifying standard at the meet. One of the four men tied for the lead, Nick Ross, was the odd man out of the four, as he was the only one who has not reached the 'A' standard at any point this year.
Similar results caused the top two in the men's javelin to miss out on the Olympics. Sam Humphreys and Samuel Crouser finished first and second, but neither has reached the Olympic 'A' standard this year. That means the third-through-fifth placed throwers -- Craig Kinsley, Sean Furey and Cyrus Hostetler -- will be headed to London.
In the women's triple jump, only Amanda Smock reached the 'A' standard, and she'll be heading to London as the United States' lone representative in the event.
