13 Can't Miss USA Athletes At U20s, Plus 6 More Worldwide

Team USA 


Josh Hoey

Event: 800m

School: Bishop Shanahan (PA) graduate/University of Oregon signee

Breakdown: Finland will be a fine opportunity for Hoey to go after the second sub-1:48 performance of his prep career, if not an all-out effort for the high school national record. Hoey has run 1:48 three separate times in 2018, and has said that U20s will give him the opportunity he's been craving. 

Can Hoey surpass Michael Granville's national record of 1:46.45, which has stood since 1996? He'll have to really work for it. The Oregon signee and USA Junior champ enters the U20 field ranked No. 12 overall with a 1:48.37, while Ethiopia's Tadese Lemi enters as the prohibitive favorite with his 1:46.00 clocking from earlier in March.
