The 2014 Chinese Junior Championships in Lishui, Zhejiang province, underlined the medal hopes of this nation at next month’s IAAF World Junior Championships in Eugene, USA, with some outstanding performances in several field events across the three days of the event, which finished on Sunday (22).
Many of these medal hopes have already proven themselves by winning medals at previous editions of the IAAF World Youth Championships.
As usual, there are Chinese women throwers reaching for the top podium.
The leading junior in the world in the shot put, 2011 world youth champion Guo Tianqian, easily won her event with a 17.51m toss. Her personal best and world junior-leading mark from this season is 17.84m.
