BATON ROUGE - Two current and two former LSU track and field athletes have qualified for the World Championships.

Natoya Goule and Damar Forbes, both 2013 NCAA champions, join Nickiesha Wilson and Isa Phillips for the tournament to be held Aug. 10-18 in Moscow.

Goule ran 1 minute, 59.93 seconds to win the women's 800 meters and Forbes jumped 27 feet, ¾ inches to win the men's long jump at the 2013 Senior Champions on Saturday. Goule became the first Lady Tiger in program history to break the two-minute barrier in that event and broke her school record of 2:00.06 set in the NCAA Outdoor championships.

Wilson and Phillips also return to the World Championships with Team Jamaica for the fourth time in their careers after sweeping bronze medals in the 400-meter hurdles.
