The U-20 World Athletics Championships will kickstart from 1st August 2022 in Cali, Colombia. The Athletics Federation of India (AFI) has sent a 31-member contingent to the event including the previous edition medallist relay team and racewalker Amit Khatri.
While the relay team and Amit Khatri will once again be in action, the 2021 long jump silver medallist Shaili Singh has been ruled out of the global event due to an injury. With 3 medals in Nairobi, India had enjoyed its best ever campaign in U-20 World Athletics Championships during the last edition in Kenya.
The star attraction for this edition for India remains quartermiler Priya Mohan and Rupal Chaudhary along with race walker Amit Khatri. Two athletes - Priyanka Sikarwar and Babubhai Barjod, have been forced to miss the global event after being diagnosed with covid-19.
The Indian athletes' travel to Cali has been affected by visa issues and the contingent is travelling to the South American nation in batches for the tournament.
