Mountain Pointe product Will Claye has already reserved a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.

The question is can he gain another.

Claye finished second to Marquise Goodwin on Sunday in the U.S. track trials long jump.

Goodwin won it with a personal-best of 27 feet, 4 inches on his final attempt, putting him on the Olympic team.

Claye was second at 27-0 ,and George Kitchens Jr. was third at 26-11 1/4, just making the Olympic "A" standard needed to qualify for the London Games.

Claye's focus now turns to the triple jump with qualifying starting on Thursday in Oregon with the finals on Saturday.

The hope is to track him down between the end of the trails and the time he leaves for London for an extensive story.
