Only four athletes have ever broken 21 seconds inside the Armory during New Balance Nationals Indoor's history.
Will it happen again in 2022?
That will be the focal point through the preliminaries and finals as an electric field takes shape this weekend at the famed meet in New York City.
Seven athletes inside the top 25 and nine inside top 50 are scheduled to compete in the boys championship, which begins on Saturday and qualifies eight for the finals on Sunday.
Among the contenders is Archbishop Carroll (DC) junior Nyckoles Harbor, who ran 20.79 seconds in January at the Texas Tech Under Armour High School Classic; Shamali Whittle, who owns a U.S. No. 2 performance of 21.05; and Fitzroy Ledgister and Justin Braun, both coming off championships in New Jersey and Ohio.
