Over the weekend, the U.S. Olympic Trials for Track and Field athletes became must-see-tv for track and field enthusiasts, and, HDTV HQ fans of bulging track stars.
Fourth place in the 100 meter finals with 9.85 is bulge-a-riffic Clemson University sprinter Travis Padgett. The 21-year-old senior came up short by one-hundredth of a second and missed an automatic berth on the U.S. Olympic team for the 2008 summer games in Beijing. Travis will be the first alternate in the 100-meter dash on the U.S. Olympic team to the Beijing Games. The North Carolina native will be one of three additional track athletes in China to fill out the relay teams and serve in case of an injury to one of the U.S. team’s top three, Tyson Gay, Walter Dix and Darvis Patton, all of whom will be featured on Rod 2.0 this week.
