“Sacramento has a tremendous track & field culture and we are very pleased to be returning in 2014,” said USATF CEO Max Siegel. “The fan support in the region is fantastic, and the weather conditions serve sprinters, field event athletes and distance runners alike. We look forward to another successful partnership with the Sacramento Sports Commission.”

Mayor Kevin Johnson was no less enthusiastic.

USATF_LogoIt’s looking more and more likely that Sacramento will be home to the 2014 USATF National Championships.

Specifically, most events will be held at CSUS.

We’re still in the rumor phase, but we’ve been hearing the rumor since June, and local media are starting to chatter about it.

And a press conference is scheduled for this morning at Sac State.

KTXL Fox 40 ran a story last week.

The Sacramento Bee posted an on-line article last night.

 

Officials with the Sacramento Sports Commission declined comment, but have scheduled a joint news conference with USA Track & Field Tuesday morning for what they describe as a “major announcement.”

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait!
