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

Team USA 

Cory Poole

Event: 110mH, 400mH

School: University of Florida

Breakdown: It will take quite the uphill climb for Poole to challenge South Africa's Sokwakhana Zazini, who owns the No. 1, 2, 4 and 5 times worldwide in the U20 rankings, including his best of 49.32 from March of his year--over the senior height--but the Florida athlete is in contention. His 49.71 from USA Juniors, his first under 50 seconds, stands as the No. 3 best time in the U20 ranks. Zazini, however, has dipped under 50 seconds five times previously. If nothing else, Poole could be pulled along and if the stars align, could give Zazini a run for his money. Poole is also ranked No. 7 worldwide at the U20 ranks in the 110mH, which stands behind just two other athletes-LSU's Damion Thomas owns six times in the top seven.
