BYDGOSZCZ, Poland – The 2016 IAAF World U20 Championships in Bydgoszcz continues on Thursday with Day Three action.
Day two will see another loaded schedule, with the action starting at 9:30am local time, which is 3:30 am ET.
The men’s Decathlon U20 competition will open the competition on Wednesday, before the heats of the U20 men’s 110m hurdles race getting going at 9:55am (3:55am ET).
In the busy morning session, the women’s 400 metres hurdles, the men’s 400 metres heats and women’s 100m heats are all on the schedule.
Qualification in the women’s Shot Put, men’s Discus Throw, men’s Triple Jump and men’s Hammer Throw are the field events slated for the morning session on Day two.
There are four finals scheduled for Wednesday in the evening session, with the women’s Shot Put, Long Jump and Javelin Throw, as well as the men’s 3000 metres being the medal events.
Semi-final races in the men’s 110m hurdles, men’s 100m, women’s 800 and 400m categories will also take place in evening session.
Noah Lyles looked very impressive when winning his heat of the men’s 100m on Tuesday and the American, who is now the event favourite, will certainly be looking to step the pace up a notch in semis.
Another sprinter who revealed that they used very little energy in the preliminaries was Jamaica’s Junelle Bromfield in the U20 women’s 400m and she will seek to increase the pace in the semi-finals in the evening session on Day 2.
Bromfield, who entered these championships with the best overall time, will start in the second of three semi-finals of the women’s 400m, while countrywoman Tiffany James, who ran 52.98 in her heat will go in the third semis.
