Possibly our best team ever in a junior world championship with 10 athletes ranked from 1st to 5h in junior world rankings. Sasha Zhoya (110m h) and Anthony Ammirati (pole vault) will try to secure their recent continental gold medals on world stage.

 

Could be some historic championships for us, right after the somehow disappointing (actually, not really) olympics.

:SVK mini-team composed of 5 athletes (1 Boy + 4 Girls) landed in Kenya without any memorable ambitions. any new PB or progress further in their competitions will be already a successful achievement.

Interesting video showing the beautiful stadium and at the same time the poverty of local people

Countries who won medals at the 2018 championships missing this time

 

:AUS:GER:GBR:CHN:JPN:IRL:NZL:NED:SUI:USA 

 

There may be others I’ve missed 

Looking at the world rankings I doubt :GBR would have won any medals even with a full team.

Hodgkinson could have sleepwalked to a medal (Ojora in women's triple jump or your men's 4x100 m relay also would have had a good shot).

Too bad that Germany will miss this. I think it has been a long time since Germany last was this good at U20 level with 4 world leaders and multiple other medal contenders.

Always difficult to predict. Lots of WB set months ago during the ultra-competitive US College season*.  No guarantee that they’re near that form now.

 

*Which involves many non-Americans, of course.

The following are the most interesting athletes competing for me:

Krzysztof Roznicki (men's 800 m)
Sasha Zhoya (men's 110 m hurdles)

Anthony Ammirati (men's pole vault)

Matvei Volkov (men's pole vault)

Mykolas Alekna (men's discus throw)

Jente Hauttekeete (men's decathlon)
Tina Clayton (women's 100 m)

Favour Ofili (women's 200 m)

Kornelia Lesiewicz (women's 400 m)

Deribe Welteji (women's 1500 m)

Prisca Chesang (women's 3000/5000 m)

Zerfe Wondemagegn (women's 3000 m SC)
Ackera Nugent (women's 100 m hurdles)

Ditaji Kambundji (women's 100 m hurdles)

Maja Askag (women's triple jump)

Silja Kosonen (women's hammer throw)

Rose Loga (women's hammer throw)

Elina Tzengo (women's javelin throw)

Adriana Vilagos (women's javelin throw)

Saga Vanninen (women's heptathlon)

 

I think almost all of them have medal potential at the 2024 olympics. On paper men's pole vault, women's 200 m, women's 100 m hurdles, women's hammer throw and women's javelin throw should be the most interesting competitions.

 

List of some of the most promising athletes missing (for different reasons):

Erriyon Knighton (men's 100/200 m)

Sachin Dennis (men's 100 m)

Jeriel Quainoo (men's 100 m)

Jeff Erius (men's 100 m)

Johnnie Blockburger (men's 400 m)

Justin Robinson (men's 400 m)

Sean Burrell (men's 400 m/400 m hurdles)

Max Burgin (men's 800 m)

Hobbs Kessler (men's 1500 m)

Joel Ibler Lillesø (men's 5000 m)

Axel Vang Christensen (men's 5000 m)

Ryuji Mura (men's 3000 m SC)

Matthew Sophia (men's 110 m hurdles)
