Event: 100, 4x100
School: American Heritage (FL) graduate/Auburn University signee
Breakdown: The American Heritage graduate and recently minted Gatorade National Track and Field Athlete of the Year has one more objective before he closes out his high school career. Schwartz hasn't lost a single race at 100 meters in 2018, and he doesn't want to start here.
The current U20 leader at the distance will go up against the No. 2 U20 athlete at 100m, Thando Dlodlo of South Africa, and the No. 4 and 5 ranked athletes, Jake Doran of Australia and Thembo Monareng of South Africa. Schwartz's wind-legal 10.09 from the Great Southwest Classic stands as the world U20 leader at the moment, but Dlodlo has the No. 2 (10.11) and No. 4 (10.15) fastest times otherwise. Doran (10.15) and Monareng (10.18) aren't far behind, either. Ohio State's Eric Harrison, USA's other entrant, enters with a top time of 10.26.
A lot can happen in a race like this, but look for Schwartz to culminate his career with one show-stopping finish in Finland.
