Marquise Goodwin won the US track and field trials long jump with a personal-best of 27 feet, 4 inches on his final attempt, putting him on the Olympic team. Will Claye was second at 27-0, and George Kitchens Jr. was third at 26-11 1/4, just making the Olympic ''A'' standard needed to qualify for the London Games. Goodwin, a senior wide receiver at Texas, won his second straight NCAA title in the long jump earlier this month with a leap of 27 feet. The field in Sunday's event at Hayward Field was missing Olympian Dwight Philips, who wasn't able to compete because of injury.
