With 50 days to go to the IAAF World U20 Championships Bydgoszcz 2016, many of the world’s most talented teenage athletes are already showing their credentials to be considered as potential medal contenders when the Polish city stages the event between 19-24 July.

Konrad Bukowiecki is the overwhelming favourite to take the shot put gold on home soil and is guaranteed huge support from the local crowd.

The Pole has already put the 6kg implement 22.94m earlier this month, just six centimetres short of the world U20 record, and is almost three metres better than anyone else so far this season.

Even more impressively, the 19-year-old from Szczytno sent the senior shot out to an outdoor world U20 best of 21.01m at the IAAF World Challenge meeting in Ostrava, Czech Republic, 10 days ago.
