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

6. The Super Competitive Women's 400m Hurdles

Field: Masai Russell (Kentucky), Britton Wilson (Mills Godwin, VA), Vanessa Watson (Spencerport, NY), Sydni Townsend (Pittsburgh), Skyla Wilson (Penn), Leah Phillips (Bullis School, MD)

Why: Russell has a bone pick. The former Bullis School hurdler was the first athlete out last year, missing a qualifier to the IAAF U20 Championships by three-hundredths of a second. But she's gotten faster (57.34) in 2019 and reached the NCAA Championships in 2019 for the Wildcats. Is she the favorite in the event, though? Wilson is fresh off a performance of 56.77 seconds at the 400 meter distance at New Balance Nationals Outdoor and looks primed to make a play for another national title. Russell should also watch out for Watson, Townsend and Phillips, who all have the ability to race under 58 seconds.
