Women’s American
Junior (U20) Outdoor Records

American Junior Records are those ratified by USATF, which no longer recognizes the “absolute” concept, so marks must be made outdoors.  Junior Records are restricted to athletes who do not turn 20 at any time during the calendar year in which the mark is made.

+ = event not recognized as official by USATF, so “ratification” is by T&FN
(A) = mark made at over 1000m of altitude (in affected events only)
i = made indoors
M = miles
m = meters
p = mark still pending ratification
