Is it time for a new 600m national record?

The Armory Track Invitational on Feb. 3-4 in New York City looks like a prime spot for the magic to happen, as the Armory Foundation announced today that current high school record holder Kamryn McIntosh and IAAF World U20 champion Sammy Watson will compete in a professional field at the event.

McIntosh's record stands at 1:28.78. Watson is the No. 3 ranked performer all-time with her PR of 1:29.53. 

Headlining the pro field is 2016 world indoor 800m silver medalist Ajee' Wilson of adidas, who set the world junior record hold at 1:26.45 in 2013. Other entrants include Lynsey Sharp, Meg Manley, Olicia Williams, Cecilia Barowski and Kimarra McDonald.
