@mlf3805 14-19 not turning 20 the year of the competition. So some college Frosh. and Sophs. can compete. To represent the US in International Competition at the Jr. and Sr. level you must be at least 16. So 14 and 15 year olds can compete in the Jrs., Srs, Olympic Trials , but could not be on the team even if they qualified for it.

Looks like there's going to be a Tia Jones problem. She just ran 12.84 in the hurdles and she's only 15 yrs old. The fastest jr in History. If she can run fast enough, why shouldn't she be allowed to represent her country?
