(ALLON, NEV.) - Aarik Wilson -- a 10-time All-American in track at Indiana University -- is on the verge of achieving his lifelong dream.

Wilson will attempt to qualify for the Summer Olympics in Beijing when he competes this weekend in the triple jump at the U.S. Olympic trials.

Wilson has spent the last four years trying to improve on his failed attempt to make the Olympics in 2004. He finished 14th at the Olympic trials on 2004 but has been unstoppable since.
