MIDWAY, Utah — Less than an hour remains until the first event of U.S. Nationals begins. Athletes arrived at Soldier Hollow Wednesday morning to brisk temperatures, overcast skies and a light dusting of new snow.

There are 221 men and 155 women on the classic sprint start list; qualification begins at 10:00 am and heats start at 1:00 pm MST. While you wait for results to start coming in this morning, here’s a snapshot of the scene in the stadium.
