Hats off to SFA's Demi Payne for earning a a spot as a pole vaulter (1 of 3) after a superb season that included winning NCAA Division 1 Outdoor Track and Field Championships and then 3rd at the USA Track and Field Meet last weekend at Oregon.

Note that Pulaski Robinson graduate Michael Tinsley will once again be a member of Team USA in the men's 440m hurdles. Tinsley won a silver medal in each the 2012 Olympics and the 2013 World Championships. Tinsley has a career best 47.70 for 23rd on the all-time list.

Former Fayetteville Bulldog Wallace Spearmon returns to Team USA in the 200m. He has a silver from the 2005 Worlds and bronzes from both 2007 and 2009 Worlds. He has the 7th best ever time in the men's 200m at 19.65. He finished 3rd at the 2008 Olympics but was disqualified for a lane violation (one step on the inside lane stripe coming out of the last turn).

Team USA competes in the 2015 World Championships from 8/22-30 at Beijing.
