2012 World Junior Athletics Championships BarcelonaThe timing and display equipment is installed, and the stage is now set as the IAAF World Junior Championships Barcelona 2012 gets underway today. In sharp contrast to the UK at the moment, the stadium is basking in sunshine and temperatures in excess of 27 degrees, which is sure to make for challenging conditions for the athletes whilst almost certainly bringing the local crowds out to watch the best of the world's young stars compete. Good luck to everyone involved!
