Ducks' Allen's Dad Hoping To Get To Rio

(Eugene, OR)  --  The father of University of Oregon and U.S. Olympian Track & Field athlete Devon Allen is trying to get himself to Rio to watch his son compete in the Olympics.  Allen qualified last week in Eugene for the 110-meter hurdles, with his father and many family members in attendance.  His dad was recently laid off in May, and has lived off savings while applying for new jobs.  He has a GoFundMe account to try to find a way to get there with flights and hotel prices increasing with the Olympics about a month away.
