Florida’s representatives in Finland are: Enzo Hodebar (men’s long jump), Taylor Manson (women’s 400 meters; 4×400 relay), Cory Poole (men’s 110-meter hurdles; 400-meter hurdles), and Chantz Sawyers (men’s 400 meters; 4×400 relay).
Manson, Poole, and Sawyers all won national U20 titles in the individual events they will compete in. By virtue of their 400 meters titles, Manson and Sawyers were added to their respective nation’s relay pools.
