INDIANAPOLIS -- Led by Team USA coaching veterans Lisa Morgan and Orin Richburg, Team USA is set for success at the 2016 IAAF World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Morgan was head coach of Team USA at the 2015 IAAF World Youth Championships, while Richburg, currently head coach at New Mexico State University, has served on international teams at nearly every level, including most recently at the 2014 IAAF World Relays and USA vs. the World in 2016.
