Teen Olympian Sydney McLaughlin will skip World Juniors, focus on Rio

Ariana Washington competes in the first round of the women's 200-meter at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Track and Field at Hayward Field on July 8, 2016 in Eugene, Ore.

Allyson Felix will not defend her 200m Olympic title in Rio after failing to qualify, but will race in the 400m.

She finished fourth in the 200-meter final, one spot out of the mix, in a.01-second loss to a sprawling Jenna Prandini at the US track and field trials.

"Disappointing", Felix said of the race. I'm just grateful with everything that has happened I'm still able to make the team. He was disqualified, however, in his first race in Beijing, which has served as added motivation to make it back to the world stage in this Olympic year with a winning performance in the U.S. Trials.

She did make the 400-meter lineup, an accomplishment considering the injury she suffered this spring after landing awkwardly on an exercise ball while doing core work.

Tori Bowie and Deajah Stevens finished first and second.

"I don't know what happened", said Prandini, who finished in 22.53 seconds. "But it got the job done". She planned to celebrate by going out for dinner.

McLaughlin was presented her honor by Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford, retired soccer star Abby Wambach, volleyball Olympian April Ross and retired softball star Jennie Finch. "These conditions were really tough and I can't wait to get to a meet and jump something I'm capable of".

This will be Huddle's second Olympic appearance - she finished 11th in the 5,000 at the London Games. She had the highest mark on the beam Sunday at 15.700.

Not anymore. The 22-year-old - the oldest member of the team - stormed her way through two run-up events to trials and kept it going on Sunday night.

When the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials - Track & Field entered the final weekend, 10 collegians had successfully navigated the "Road to Rio" and landed on Team USA.

►Barbara Nwaba led pretty much from start to finish in the heptathlon, tallying 6,494 points to lead Heather Miller-Koch (6,243) and Kendell Williams (6,402).

Sydney, who turns 17 on Aug 7 during the Games, held her nerve to clinch third place in the 400m hurdles in a junior world record of 54.15sec. "When I give all I have and run 22.5, it (her speed) is just not there".

McCorory has a string of four consecutive 4x400 medals won at either the Olympic Games or outdoor world championships, starting with golds at the 2011 worlds and the London 2012 Olympic Games, then silvers at the 2013 and 2015 world championships.

McLaughlin, who still has another year at Union Catholic High School in Scotch Plains, N.J., finished in 54.15, which sets a world junior record, improving on the 54.46 she ran at the New Balance Nationals in June to break the 32-year-old record set by Leslie Maxie of Mills (Millbrae, Calif.) in 1984.
