Former IU track standout David Neville punched his ticket to next month’s Olympics in Beijing with a third-place finish in the men’s 400 meters Thursday night at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials in Eugene, Ore.
Neville, the indoor national champion, finished in 44.61 seconds behind Olympic favorites LaShawn Merritt and Jeremy Wariner. That time is easily better than the Olympic qualifying ‘A’ standard of 45.55.
Neville is the first track and field Hoosier to make the Olympic team, joining diver Christina Loukas, who won the 3-meter springboard at the Trials two weeks ago.
