The United States of America competed at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics from August 27 to September 4 in Daegu, South Korea.[1]

Team selection[edit]

The team was led by reigning World Champions LaShawn Merritt (400m), Kerron Clement (400m hurdles), Dwight Phillips (long jump), Christian Cantwell (shot put), and Trey Hardee (decathlon) in the men's team, and Allyson Felix (200m), Sanya Richards-Ross (400m), and Brittney Reese (long jump) in the women's team.

In the final roster Debbie Dunn and Delilah DiCrescenzo withdrew due to injury and were replaced.[2] Michael Rodgers withdrew after testing positive for the banned stimulant methylhexaneamine at a meeting in Italy in July.[1]. Trell Kimmons replaced him in the 100m.[3] Jeremy Dodson was forced to withdraw after his passport was confiscated following his arrest on a charge of identity theft.[2]

The final team on the entry list comprises the names of 155 athletes, including 2 athletes invited by the IPC for exhibition events: Joshua George, 400m T53 (wheelchair) men, and Amberlynn Weber, 800m T54 (wheelchair) women.[4]

After all, 127 athletes competed in the different events (see section "Reserves" below:[3]).
