Heading into London, the U.S. team is coming off several strong results. Many of the athletes have recorded personal bests on the season, some have set championship records and one even became a new world-record holder.

From Diamond League meets in 2012, true contenders emerged. A handful of the members of Team USA won on the Diamond League circuit in 2012, and even more placed on the medal podium. These showings, in addition to the U.S. Trials, gave form to who would be representing Team USA in the Olympics.

In addition to the Diamond League, U.S. stars emerged from the 2011 National and World Championships. As the U.S. led in medals at the Worlds and have continued to put up times relative to the best in the world in track and field events on the year, they are definite favorites to take home a lofty medal haul in London.

Here are some key results that have helped to determine the U.S. team and could give a taste of how certain athletes will fare in London.
