Marcus Chambers has been nothing shy of impressive at the USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships. The Oregon Ducks Track and Field recruit, through his top two events, has posted strong times in both the 200-meter and 400-meter.

Chambers posted a time of 21.22 seconds in the 200-meters, second only to Mustaq’eem Williams who sits in first with a time of 20.64 seconds. In the 400-meter semifinals, Chambers posted a time of 46.91 seconds. His time, while best of the heat, is the second fastest time through the event.

Chambers is a freakishly talented sprinter and a huge pickup for the Oregon program. He has been competing all summer include the USA Junior Championships back in June. He ran a time of 46.55 seconds, a time he wasn’t proud of and is hoping to improve on.

“I’ll be training all summer,” Chambers said in an article by the Oregonian. “Hopefully I’ll be at my peak.”
