The United States will send 89 athletes to the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships, which will be held on home soil in Eugene between 22-27 July.

The US team for Oregon 2014 includes eight individual medallists from the 2013 IAAF World Youth Championships, four NCAA (US collegiate) champions and 17 athletes with previous World Junior Championships experience. 

Among the top names is NCAA 100m champion and world junior record holder Trayvon Bromell. 

At the previous IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona two years ago, the US team pulled in nine gold, four silver and seven bronze medals to top the medals table.

Five women from that 2012 US team return this year, led by 4x400m relay gold medallist Kendall Baisden.

The full squad, including officials, can be seen here.

The championships will be held at historic Hayward Field on the University of Oregon campus.
