MADISON (WKOW) -

A pair of Badgers will be representing Team USA in the IAAF World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland. Olin Hacker and Zack Snider will both be running the 5,000 meters.

"Just to be able to put the USA on your chest and look down and see it on your chest, it means a lot because you're representing the entire country," says Hacker.

The pair qualified for the World Junior Championships at the US Junior Championships. Snider won that race. Hacker finished third. However, the former Madison West standout was the best finisher to reach the qualifying standard earlier in the season. 

The teammates left Friday for Poland. They will compete on July 23.
