  • Junior Qualification

    Help me out please. To compete in World Junior Championships or have a result considered for a record, etc., can you be 19 but not 20? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    You cannot be 20 at any date in the current year.

      Thanks, the reason I ask is wouldn't Trey Hardee's 7500 something decathlon last year been eligble for inclusion in the listing of top junior scores for 2003? Or do you have to use the junior implements? Please tell me it ain't so!

            Trey Hardee's score (7544) is correctly listed in the FAST annual as the best decathlon performance by a US Junior last year. But the FAST list inexplicably excludes marks made with the junior implements, which is absurd, considering the fact that these are now standard for juniors. We have our national championships using junior implements and we recognize national records with junior implements (and not with senior implements if the performance is inferior). Oddly enough, in the hammer throw, FAST has separate lists for juniors throwing senior and junior implements. But in the shot, discus, and decathlon, the junior implements are ignored.

            The ATFS annual includes Hardee's performance in the main list for the event and shows that he was a Junior last year, but inexplicably omits him from the Junior lists. (The ATFS shows separate lists for juniors throwing senior and junior implements. Hardee's mark is not shown in either list.)

            Tilastopaja's junior list includes only marks made with senior implements, which I think is unfortunate, given that competition as important as the European and Pan-Am Junior Championships were held last year with junior implements.

            The IAAF's junior list includes only marks made with junior implements and ignores marks made with senior implement. This is statistically unsound. Hardee's score should have been listed since he was using heavier implements.
