The Top 7 Events At USA U20 Championships To Keep An Eye On

7. A Men's Battle In The 110mH

Field: Eric Edwards (Oregon), Jamar Marshall (St. Mary's Stockton, CA), Tai Brown (Kentucky), Cordell Tinch (Kansas), Job Mayhue (Michigan)

Why: Marshall, the nation's top hurdler at the high school height of 39-inches, owns the best wind-legal time of 13.50 seconds. And that was no fluke. He's gone wind-legal efforts of 13.60, 13.61 and 13.61 -- not to mention wind-aided times of 13.31 and 13.56. But at the international level, he'll need to adjust for a 42-inch hurdle. Edwards, meanwhile, made an NCAA final with the Ducks and was the best freshman hurdler in the country -- he did so while coming back from injury following his senior year of high school. Edwards may have some room to grow if he wants to win an NCAA title, but his wind-legal 13.49 (+2.0) at 42-inches puts him in the discussion as one of the best in this event and he will need to be beaten first, at least if anyone else wants to book a trip to the Pan-American Championships. This should be a great battle.
