Is Quincy Wilson Going To The Olympics?

Quincy Wilson missed out on a top-three place in the men's 400m at the US Olympic Trials, but he still has a chance to head to the Paris Olympics 2024.

Update: Yes. Quincy Wilson has been added to the US Olympic Track Relay Pool

Quincy Wilson broke out as one of the top stories at the U.S. Track and Field Olympic Trials. Just managing to land in the nine-person field for the 400m men's field with athletes twice his age was incredibly impressive for the 16-year-old sophomore. He also broke the U18 men's world record while at the Trials. 

Despite a slow start, Wilson willed himself from ninth place to sixth in the final stretch, missing out on the top three, but finishing in a spot that could keep his Paris Olympic dream alive. 

It wasn't the first time Wilson made a comeback this year. In May, he twice brought his team back from the brink in the 4x400m relay as Bullis' anchor runner at Penn Relays. 

Wilson could still become the youngest male track and field athlete to go to the Olympics. Here's how.

Is Quincy Wilson Going To The Olympics?

The straight-forward answer is: maybe. Wilson's job is done, having already achieved the Olympic Qualifying Standard, but his fate is now in the hands of the USATF National Selection Committee and the U.S. Olympic Track and Field coaches.

Wilson could be added to the pool for the 4x400m men's relay or the mixed 4x400m relay. The U.S. Track and Field team can take seven runners for the 400m to the Olympics: three qualifiers, two for the 4x400m relay, and two for the 4x400m mixed relay.

With multiple sub-45 times, Wilson is in a good position to take a spot, but because the U.S. 400m talent pool is so deep, it's ultimately up to the committee and coaches who will fill the 4x400m relay.
