The 2015 World Youth Championships in Athletics will take place in Cali, Colombia from July 15th  to July 19th . It will be the ninth edition of the biennial International Athletics Competition for the Youth (under-18).Held across 5 days, the venue for the competition is the Estadio Olimpico Pascual Guerrero stadium, with many young aspiring athletes involved in the proceedings. Let us now look at 10 talented and emerging athletes to watch out for in the competition:

#1 Candace Hill (USA) - 100m Sprint Event

USA's Candace Hill, a prodigious 16 year old talent, had smashed her personal best, and a couple of other world records with a timing of 10.98 seconds to win the gold in the 100m event at the Brooks PR Invitational in Seattle this year.

Hill, who has one more year left in the youth age group, sits third in all time world junior list, just 0.10 seconds shy of the world junior record. She is an overwhelming favorite to clinch the gold in the 100m sprint event at the IAAF World Youth Championships, with a lot of hopes riding on her.
