Day 4 Preview

Two-time reigning world pole vault champion Sam Kendricks enters Monday's U.S. Trials final (6:30 p.m. ET) as the No. 2 American this year behind Chris Nilsen, gold medalist at the 2019 Pan American Games.

But the 28-year-old should presumably lift off soon — not only has he won the last six U.S. outdoor titles, including the 2016 Trials, he's the outright American record-holder and third-best vaulter of all-time outdoors with a personal-best of 6.06m/19-10.5 from the last U.S. Outdoor Championships final in 2019.

Headed into this year's Trials, Kendricks had vaulted 5.80m or better at three of his five outdoor meets in 2021.

The Oxford, Mississippi, native tied Nilsen and four others for the top mark in Saturday's qualifying with 5.65m/18-6.5.

Kendricks, the bronze medalist at the 2016 Rio Games, is vying to make his second Olympic team.

Reigning world 800m champion Donavan Brazier looks to make his first Olympic team in Sunday's final (8:28 p.m. ET), needing a top-three finish.

The final will be hotly contested, as the particular distance always is, and the 24-year-old is expected to be challenged by Bryce Hoppel, fourth at the 2019 World Championships; 2021 NCAA champion Isaiah Jewett; 2016 Olympic bronze medalist Clayton Murphy; and 2017 World Championships team member Isaiah Harris.

Brazier broke Johnny Gray's 34-year-old American record when he won his world title in 2019, clocking 1:42.34.

The Grand Rapids, Michigan, native has been a record-breaking machine ever since he began competing. As a junior in high school he broke the state record in 1:48.61, then in his debut collegiate race in 2016 he broke the American junior indoor record in 1:45.92. The following outdoor season he broke the collegiate record in 1:43.55, then turned pro. He finished 19th overall at the 2016 U.S. Trials.

Going into this year's Trials Brazier had yet to run sub-1:45 outdoors with only a single race under his belt from May. He also ran a 1500m in late April at Hayward Field.

Brazier (1:45.00), Brannon Kidder (1:45.06) and Harris (1:45.25) were Friday's top first-round qualifiers. Hoppel (1:46.00), Harris (1:46.16) and Jewett (1:46.18) were Saturday's top semifinal qualifiers.

It's been nearly a half-century since the U.S. won an Olympic gold medal in the men’s 800m. Dave Wottle last captured the title at the 1972 Munich Games.

Others to look out for in a final-packed Monday:

  • Will Claye, two-time Olympic triple jump silver medalist, in the triple jump final (7:40 p.m. ET), which is notably missing Christian Taylor
  • Elle Purrier, American indoor mile record-holder, and Jenny Simpson, 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, in the women's 1500m final (8:05 p.m. ET)
  • And epic battles in the women's 5000m final (8:40 p.m. ET) and first-round heats of the men's 3000m steeplechase (7:29 p.m. ET)

Weather will almost certainly be a factor, especially in the 5000m and steeplechase races, with temperatures expected to reach 94 degrees Fahrenheit around 4 p.m. local time (7 p.m. ET).
