  • The four previous U20 Champs that were held in August with U.S. participation were not very good for the Americans. Mid-July is probably the prime time for U.S. U20 folks to compete internationally.

    • The fact they held one in a October in Santiago is just wild.

      • I don't know that I would have these athletes out there high jumping in the rain and lightning.

          Yep, I was surprised they continued, especially with the lightning.

          • Worst situation is the 200 female finalists at the track and its 1000 meters back to the warm up track. They need to allow for proper warm up on the stadium track or give time to go back to warm up area

            • Proposed revision to the world U20 championships: get rid of the lighter weight throwing implements and the shorter high hurdle height for the men.

                You do realise they used to have both of those when the Champs first started, but it was decided to change to the current weights and heights?

                      You think 😂. They're licking their chops. They'll have possibly the three best Jamaican long jumpers not named Tajay Gayle in Hibbert, Carey McLeod and Wayne Pinnock (who all attended Kingston College by the way). 100m medal lists Tina Clayton and Serena Cole were both Edwin Allen alums, while 200m medalists Brianna Lyston and Alana Reid (and 100 hurdles favourite Kerrica Hill) are Hydel alums
                      why don't people pronounce vowels anymore

                        Then they should change them back

                        • Jamaica w4x100m 42.59 for a world U20 record.

                          This time they'll be sure to get all 4 team members drug tested. (in case you don't already know, they ran a 42.58 this year that didn't get ratified because only 3 of the 4 were drug tested the same evening of the race)

                            Why? ....for the vast majority of U20 hurdlers and throwers (99.9 percent who don't go to major meets) learning to hurdle on 42" barriers as high school freshmen or throwing a 16 pound shot is just going to result in terrible technique and frustration? are you suggesting they raise them for just this one meet? That would make for some very entertaining 1110HH races

                            • That's why you have U18 competition.

                              • They run 36 inch hurdles. (Or did fairly recently.)
