May 23, 2002
Stanford, Calif. - The Track & Field Foundation and Stanford University are proud to host the Oracle US Open Track & Field. The meet will be held at Stanford's Cobb Track & Angell Field on June 8th, 2002 at 6pm.
'This is a tremendous vote of confidence for the Bay Area's fans and facilities and for track and field in the U.S. from one of the most important corporations in the U.S.,' said Nancy Ditz, chair of the Track & Field Foundation. 'We and Oracle look forward to hosting a spectacular meet, one that will be savored by athlete and spectator alike.'
Last year's meet was a tremendous success, highlighted by a full house and a world record pole vault by Stacy Dragila. With Marion Jones, Gail Devers, Regina Jacobs and Stacy Dragila planning to compete again this year, we anticipate another sold out meet, so purchase your tickets early by calling 1-800-STANFORD.
There will be a Free Youth Track & Field Clinic for all kids 14 and under prior to the meet at 2pm. The Oracle US Open will be televised June 9th, 4:00pm EST on CBS.
