DURHAM, N.C. – This Sunday, May 5, 2013, Wallace Wade Stadium will be set up for its potential final Duke sponsored track meet.  Approximately 40 Blue Devils will toe the line, step into the throws ring and mark their steps for what may be the final competition in the place they have called home for over 80 years.

It all began on March 28, 1931, with Duke defeating Washington & Lee in a dual meet, 74-52.  It would be impossible to realize on that cold and rainy afternoon that this same venue would host international meets including the USA – Pan-Africa meet in 1971, that brought in over 50,000 fans in two days, the USA vs. USSR during the height of the Cold War in 1974 in front of over 65,000 fans and the return of USA vs Pan-Africa in 1994 that included 11 world champions and three Olympic champions.  Wallace Wade has also hosted eight Southern Conference Championships, 10 ACC Championships and NCAA Championships in 1990 and 2000. 

The stadium records alone include the names of eight Olympic champions including Michael Johnson, Shawn Crawford, Dennis Mitchell, Edwin Moses Charles Austin and Michael Conley on the men’s side and Gwen Torrence, Maria Mutola and Faina Melnik on the women’s side.  The group of record holders also own over 60 collective Olympic appearances. 

Aside from the spotlight of competition, Wallace Wade track also served as the backdrop for integration in the 1950’s when Duke head coach Al Buehler and North Carolina Central coach, the late Dr. LeRoy Walker, joined forces to train their athletes together, regardless of their race.  This took place prior to Duke University enrolling its first African-American students in 1963. 

On Sunday, the Duke Twilight will kick off with the javelin throw at noon on Duke’s East Campus. All other events including the men’s hammer throw at 2 p.m. will be held on Duke’s West Campus.  Running events will begin at 5 p.m.

For a complete list of Duke participants, see the table below.  Several seniors will also be honored as it is their final home meet. 

The Blue Devil Network will begin live streaming events on the track beginning at 5 p.m.  Live results will be available throughout the entire competition via Flash Results, and a full recap of the event will be available at its conclusion on www.GoDuke.com.
