Ian Waltz leads four Washingtonians into Barcelona...

Olympic Trials discus champion Ian Waltz leads a small contingent of Washington-affiliated athletes into Barcelona’s Estadio Olimpico Saturday for the Meeting Ciutat de Barcelona track meet.

The former Cougar, who won his second berth on the US Olympic team a few weeks ago in Eugene, Oregon, is the top seeded thrower going into Saturday’s competition.

Also competing in Barcelona are former Auburn High standout Chris Lukezic in the men’s 1500, and former WSU standouts Dominique Arnold and Arend Watkins, who are competing in the men’s 110 meter hurdles.

The Meeting Ciutat de Barcelona is a European Athletics permit meet and is a test event for the city, leading to its hosting of the 2010 European Championships.

The start list for Saturday’s meet is posted here, and results will be available upon the conclusion of the meet here.
