Dave McGovern is a 7-time USA Track & Field Olympic Trials finalist in the 20 kilometer and 50 kilometer race walks. Only a handful of athletes in any track and field event have appeared in five consecutive Trials; fewer still have qualified for six. Only two have extended the streak to seven — hammer thrower Ed Burke, and McGovern. The Road to Ocho follows Dave McGovern in his quest to stand alone at eight by qualifying for the 2016 Olympic Trials.
