Team USA athletes check out the Olympic Stadium in advance of Friday's start of track & field...

RIO DE JANEIRO—With two days to go before the start of track & field competition on Friday at the Olympic Games, several members of Team USA visited the Estádio Olímpico João Havelange for the traditional pre-meet athlete walk-through.

Three of the state’s representatives were kind enough to share their photos of Wednesday’s walk-through via social media.

Here are decathlete Jeremy Taiwo, triple jumper Andrea Geubelle (left/photo courtesy USOC), and javelin thrower Kara Winger (courtesy Kara Winger):
