The IAAF will also be providing event-by-event reports, along with selected flash interviews on its dedicated World Youth Championships website.

Cali 2015, which will feature a number of world-class young talents who have already left their mark on the global circuit, will be the biggest international track and field event to be held in South America.

Host nation Colombia, who is able to select one person in each event, regardless of whether they meet the qualification standard – named a squad of 39 athletes for the championships, with 24 of them earning the qualifying standards for their respective events.

In total, some 1,237 athletes over 150 countries will compete at the event that will run between 15 and 19 July.

This year’s championships in the second-biggest city in Colombia, will see a South American country hosting the IAAF World Youth Championships for the first time.

Among the stars to watch out for is American 16-year-old sprinter Candace Hill, who is the overwhelming favourite to win the girls’ sprint double.

She takes a commanding time of 10.98 seconds into the 100m field and a personal best of 23.05 for the 200m.

Hill has clocked a wind-aided 22.76  (+2.8 m/s) also this season but her goal is to break the 23-barrier with a legal wind.

“I want to run 22 seconds wind-legal in the 200m; that’s my goal for the season,” the American said.

Jamaica’s Christopher Taylor is also another athlete to watch at the championships and he will contest the boys’ 400m dash.
