Irwin Belk Track at Fetzer Field – Chapel Hill, NC

Two days ago it was Duke.  Today its their neighboring rival North Carolina.  Irwin Belk Track is located on the UNC campus in Chapel Hill, NC, and is the home of the Tarheal track teams.  Two Team USA members came from here:  Alice Schmidt (800m) and distance great Shalane Flanagan, who moved up from the 5k/10k to run the marathon in London.  They were teammates who both graduated the same year.  Flanagan finished in 10th place, just ahead of training partner Kara Goucher.  Schmidt finished 4th in her semi-final heat, but it ended up being the slowest heat and she did not advance.
