EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Sam Humphreys won the javelin at the U.S. track trials on Monday with a throw of 268 feet, 7 inches, but he doesn’t make the Olympic team because he doesn’t have the required “A” standard.
Runner-up Sam Crouser, with a throw of 265-01, also failed to make the team because he hadn’t thrown the standard of 269 feet this season.
The United States will be represented in the London Games by Craig Kinsley, Sean Furey and Cyrus Hostetler, who all have the standard.
Kinsley finished third with a throw of 262-02. Furey was fourth with 255-05, and Hostetler was fifth with 254-08.
