EUGENE, Oregon — The 2023 Toyota USATF Outdoor Championships at Hayward Field will witness the highly anticipated women’s and men’s 800m semifinals tonight (July 7), featuring thrilling matchups. To secure a spot in the final, athletes must finish in the top three or achieve a time fast enough to rank among the next two fastest competitors outside the automatic qualifying positions.

Heat one of the women’s semifinals will kick off with an exciting battle between Nia Akins, Raevyn Rogers, Ajee Wilson, and Allie Wilson as they aim for a top-three finish. They face strong competition from Olivia Baker and Roisin Willis.

In the second semifinal heat, Charlene Lipsey, the favorite to advance, will compete alongside Sage Hurta-Klecker. However, keep a close eye on NCAA champion Michaela Rose from LSU and collegiate athlete Juliette Whittaker from Stanford, who are determined to secure a spot in the final.
