EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Brittany Borman won the javelin at the U.S. track trials with a throw of 201 feet, 9 inches, putting her on the Olympic team.

Kara Patterson was second at 196-2, and Kimberly Hamilton finished third with a throw of 190-5 at Hayward Field.

Hamilton does not have the Olympic "A'' standard of 200-1 this season to make the U.S. team for the London Games, so the third spot on the team went to fourth-place finisher, Rachel Yurkovich.

Borman is a former Festus High School track star and is currently a senior at the University of Oklahoma.
