On August 1st 2022, the U-20 World Athletics Championships will get underway in Cali, Colombia. The previous edition's medal-winning relay team and racewalker Amit Khatri are among the 31 athletes who will compete for India through the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) in the competition.

Shaili Singh, who won the silver medal in the long jump in 2021, will not compete in the international competition because of an injury, but the relay team and Amit Khatri will be back in action. India produced their best-ever performance in the U-20 World Athletics Championships during the most recent edition in Kenya, winning three medals in Nairobi.

Priya Mohan, Rupal Chaudhary, and race walker Amit Khatri are once again India's primary draws for this event. After receiving a diagnosis of COVID-19, two athletes, Priyanka Sikarwar and Babubhai Barjod were forced to withdraw from the international competition.

Due to visa complications, the delegation of Indian athletes is arriving in batches in Colombia in preparation for the competition.
