Realistically, Alexis Thomas knows her best chance of making the United States Olympic Track and Field team is for the 2016 Games in Rio De Janerio, Brazil, and beyond. “But I never dreamed all this would’ve happened to me in the last month,” she said. “So I can dream of making the team this year and going to London. Stranger things have happened.”
Thomas, a junior at Ohio State from Wayne High School, will get a chance to fulfill that dream today as the U.S. Olympic Track and Field trials begin in a nine-day run in Oregon.
