Chris Stanley — a researcher at Florida State University’s Florida Center for Reading Research — is set to serve as one of two sport psychologists for the USA Track and Field team at the U20 World Junior Championships from July 19 to July 24 in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Stanley, who earned his MS in Sport Psychology at FSU in ’04, also serves as an adjunct faculty member for FSU’s sport psychology program. He is thrilled to be a part of USATF’s medical support staff for one of the world’s most important competitions in the sport of track and field.
