Rumour is that some of the American threatened to sue the IAAF.

At the moment only 4 have qualified to take part.

You know who are they?

2 Chinese, 2 Americans

The world record holder from Portugal has to wait as her time was not set in an official qualifying event

Probably they will find ways on getting more to compete ib the end

Congrats, easy gold tomorrow, probably could have medalled at U23 european championships. There are many events where the medal winners at the U20 european championships could have medalled at the U23 european championships or the U18 world championships, i think they should seperate those competitions more, so that its possible to compete at all of them or at least two of them.

She improved the NR to 55.96, but didn't even win! Giger (SUI) ran 55.90. What's with the Swiss improvement in track events in recent years?

Very surprising, the swiss girl improved her PB by more than 1.5 seconds, which is extremely weird at a distance of only 400 m ...

Switzerland has also Hussein, Kambundji, Zbären, Fontanive and Sprunger. I guess we have to wait how the swiss girl progresses, she was born in 1999, but looks like a 25 year old, so its probably 50/50 whether she will continue to improve or not. It was kinda the same with Zbären, she reached the final in Beijing in 2015 and everyone thought that she would get only better, but then she completely vanished ...

Slovenian fans should be happy that they have two great track talents who will be able to compete in London, with Zupan and the male 400 m runner.

I think the german female 4x100 relay just set a new U20 world record ... ?!

Probably the first world record here, Niklas Kaul could also set a new world record by running 4:21 or faster later on. Duplantis probably wont be able to jump 6 m for now, so we probably wont see any more world records.

This new event will be ridiculous...is IAAF trying to show that race walk (50km in particular) is a joke, so they will have more support when they decide to remove it? :p

It looks like IAAF doesn't even know their own sport and because of that are indeed trying to show this :rolleyes:

 

They'd better take a look at the last 50km races, which have almost all been a lot more exciting than the average major champs 100m final.

New U20 WR in Peru for Pan Am U20, USA Men's 4x400m 3:00.33

 

Full results http://www.tiempodellegada.com/Results/2017/INTERNACIONAL/PANAM_U20/

 

USA wins medal table easily like always: 22 golds, 14 silvers, 18 bronze, though in 2015 they had 30 golds.

Canada has probably their best ever Pan Am U20 performance with 6 golds, 9 silver, 7 bronze. We got two National U20 records with Anastas Eliopoulos 13.36 (-0.6) in Men's 110mH, and Camryn Rogers 63.42m in Women's Hammer. Rogers now has broke her own Hammer record 5 times this year (4 competitions she broke it in, but she broke it twice today) :d
