NSAF brings you the IAAF World U20 Champs

Anthony Schwartz and Eric Harrison win silver and bronze in the men's 100 final.

The NSAF is once again on-site with Team USA at an IAAF World meet and we're excited to share our coverage with you. This time it's the 2018 World U20 (Under-20) Championships (formerly World Juniors), taking place this week in beautiful Tampere, Finland.

We're just over halfway through the week and so far we've seen a half-dozen medals by Team USA, as well as others by athletes repping other nations who have competed for U.S. high schools and universities. Many of these athletes have been New Balance Nationals champions and All-Americans -- and/or represented Team NSAF in our Caribbean Scholastic meets, and our Javelin and Triple Jump Projects.

So far we have seen great performances by the likes of Dana Baker in the javelin (bronze), Tripp Piperi in the shot (silver, American Jr record), Twanisha Terry in the 100 (silver, after meet record in semis), Taylor Manson (bronze 400), Anthony Schwartz and Eric Harrison (silver and bronze 100), Jamaicans (who prepped in U.S.), Damion Thomas (110H gold) and Briana Williams (100 gold) and many others.

Photos below include Piperi, Wiliams, Terry, Baker and Manson.

Those still going for the gold and other medals include Mondo Duplantis (pole vault), Tia Jones (100H), Tzuriel Pedigo (javelin), Tara Davis and Jasmine Moore (long and triple jump), Cory Poole (400H), Josh Hoey (800) and many others.


Our coverage includes video interviews, great photos and daily recaps. Check out what we've got so far:
