Former Badger makes U.S. Olympic track team
Former University of Wisconsin runner Matt Tegenkamp has made the Olympic track team.
He placed second in the 5,000 meter final Monday night at the U.S. Trials in Eugene Ore.
Ex-Badger Chris Solinsky placed fourth - one spot short of making it to Beijing. Solinsky led the race with about 1,000 meters left, but eventual winner Bernard Lagat passed him with about 200 meters to go.
