Bronco Stadium – Boise, ID

And last, but not least, we have our third discus thrower for Team USA, Jarred Rome.  Competing in his second Olympic Games this summer, he finished in 31st place in the qualifying rounds.  As I have said before, I love seeing college tracks that are located inside big football stadiums.  The track inside Bronco Stadium, where the Boise State University track teams compete does not disappoint.  I have been a fan of Boise State for a while.  A good friend of mine played football here, and also served as their strength & conditioning coach for a while.  And who doesn’t love the blue turf!?!  This is just a great facility, with a great atmosphere I’m told.

Kurt Felix who was a senior for the Broncos this past spring also competed in London for his native country of Grenada, in the decathlon.  He had to withdraw though on the second day, due to a hamstring injury.
