    (INDIANAPOLIS) This Olympic Season, some of America’s top athletes

    will compete in Hillsdale Michigan, on the campus of Hillsdale

    College, on June 10-12th, 2004. This three day high performance

    event, taking place just four weeks before the 2004 U.S. Olympic

    Trials, will feature the reigning USATF National Club Champions

    in track & field and cross country respectively, the

    Indiana Invaders and Michigan’s Hansons-Brooks ODP.

    This event is a “Family Friendly, Spectator Friendly” competition

    featuring High Performance Entertainment on the track and will be

    produced by NFTL, Inc. working with the Hillsdale Track & Field


    The Hansons Midwest Distance Solution, on Thursday June 10th, will

    be run in the evening under the lights and will be a premiere

    distance festival featuring the 800, 1500, 3000 Steeple, 5000,

    and 10,000. This is a unique opportunity for fans to see some of

    America’s top distance athletes compete. The Hansons-Brooks ODP

    have a growing number of athletes qualified for the 2004 U.S.

    Olympic Team Trials.

    The Olympic Trials qualifying efforts will continue into the weekend

    with The Big Blue National Invitational, featuring two days of intense

    Olympic Trials qualifying efforts on Friday & Saturday June 11-12th.

    The event is a “finals only” invitational with only select events,

    including the decathlon and heptathlon, will be contested over the

    two days. Defending Olympic Trials Champion DeDee Nathan is expected

    to compete in the heptathlon along with 2000 Olympic Trials Decathlete,

    Brendon Falconer competing in the men’s multi-event. The Friday

    session will feature international relay teams and the Saturday

    session will be highlighted by “Wild Bill’s Magical Metric Miles.”

    The Invaders also have an expanding roster of athletes qualified for

    the 2004 U.S. Olympic Team Trials and will be out in full force

    for this exciting event.

    For anyone that has ever fantasized of running a sub-4 minute mile,

    or standing atop the awards stand at the Olympic Games, this is a

    unique opportunity to see the athletes that are training to perform

    at this level as they will come to the Hillsdale community for one

    purpose – as a final preparation for the U.S. Olympic Trials.

    Meet Director Greg Harger said, “Hillsdale’s outstanding Mondo

    surfaced facility will be a great place to compete.” Harger added,

    “This will be a high performance event that will bring the

    excitement, and the spirit of the Olympic season to the Hillsdale

    community. Fans will be able to see and touch these athletes

    as they make final preparations for the Olympic Trials.”
