EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Marquise Goodwin won the U.S. track trials long jump with a personal-best of 27 feet, 4 inches on his final attempt, putting him on the Olympic team.

Will Claye was second at 27-0 ,and George Kitchens Jr. was third at 26-11 1/4, just making the Olympic “A” standard needed to qualify for the London Games.

Goodwin, a senior wide receiver at Texas, won his second straight NCAA title in the long jump earlier this month with a leap of 27 feet.

The field in Sunday’s event at Hayward Field was missing Olympian Dwight Philips, who wasn’t able to compete because of injury.
