US track team to train in Birmingham for 2012

The U.S. track and field team that will compete in the 2012 London Olympics will train in Birmingham, England, before the games.

Birmingham’s local government says USA Track & Field has agreed to send the team to train there six weeks before the Olympics.

The city council says the deal was signed after three years of negotiations.

The U.S. team will include about 155 athletes, plus coaches, medical and support staff.
