EUGENE, Ore. – The world’s best junior athletes will converge at Hayward Field this week for the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships, July 22-27, and involved in the fray will be six current and future Ducks. It will mark the first time in the event’s 14-year history that the world championships are contested on American soil.
Oregon freshmen Christian Brennan (400), Maggie Schmaedick (5,000) and Cole Walsh (pole vault) will each be competing, with Brennan representing the Canadian National Team.
Ashlee Moore (heptathlon), Raevyn Rogers (800) and Ariana Washington (100) will each be competing for Oregon next season as freshmen, but will be on a big stage throughout the course of the week, looking to take home medals on the world stage.
Of the six competing, three were crowned U.S. Champions. Moore won the heptathlon at the multi-event competition in Sacramento followed by Walsh who had a career day in the pole vault in front of a large gathering of family and friends. Rogers was the final champion, running away with the 800-meter final.
The meet will consist of a morning session and an afternoon session during each of the first four days, Tuesday-Friday, followed by an afternoon session on Saturday and Sunday.
Universal Sports will carry blanket coverage of World Juniors both on-air and online via Universal Sports and UniversalSports.com. USATF.tv will also carry the live webcast during this window, which includes morning sessions July 22-25 and afternoon sessions July 23-25.
