Cobb Track & Angell Field – Stanford, CA

 

Staying on the West Coast, today’s track can be found on the Standford University campus.  Team USA shot putter Jill Camarena-Williams attended school here, as did marathoner Ryan Hall.  Camarena-Williams finished 15th after the qualifying round, just missing the finals.  Because of an injury, Hall did not finish the marathon.  Cobb Track & Angell Field is the home for Stanford Cardinal track teams.  Built in 1935, it was also the home track of decathlon great Bob Mathias.
