INTERNATIONAL YOUTH TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS
After an impressive inaugural event in Baltimore last summer, the 2nd Annual International Youth Track and Field Championships (IYC) moves to the Washington D.C. area, at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex in Landover, Maryland. The competition which will be held July 12-14, 2019, promises to be hyper competitive as teams from around the United States, Barbados, Canada, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Malaysia and the United Kingdom have already expressed interest in attending. Athletes will again be able to qualify for the championships from a local qualifying event or by meeting the entry standard for their event, which will be limited to 4500 athletes for this year's event. The competition will be sanctioned by USA Track and Field and governed by USATF and IAAF rules. Medals will be presented to the top 8 places in each event, with trophies to the top 3 teams.
