The Finnish city of Tampere will be the destination of 10 future stars of NSW track and field in July, as the city will host the 16th IAAF World Under 20 Championships from July 10-15th. The Championships are the pinnacle for junior athletes with over 160 countries competing for International honours.
The prediction of extremely high temperatures on the fifth and last day of the 56th Australian Junior Championships caused Athletics Australia to move the endurance events to early morning and with temperatures eventually reaching 38 degrees by early afternoon, it was a very wise decision.
As the temperatures rose, so did the performances on day four of the 56th Australian Junior Championships, being held at Homebush this week.
Some events on day three of the 56th Australian Junior Championships, being held in Sydney this week, will go down in Australian Junior Championships history.
