Sri Lanka Athletics has decided to advance the Youth Selection trial which was earlier scheduled for February. The track and field governing body stated that it had decided to conduct the selection trial for Asian Youth Championships on January 23 and 24 at the Sugathadasa Stadium.
Sri Lanka Athletics said that the dates of the selection trial were amended in response to an emergency notice from the Asian Athletics Association on Tuesday morning.
Earlier Sri Lanka Athletics had scheduled the event for February 13 and 14.
The track and field governing body has also opened the event to athletes born in 2004.
Sri Lanka Athletics conducted a youth trial in November as precursor to next year’s Asian Youth Championships selection trials. Several athletes produced notable performances during the two-day event.
