    Has the last shoe fallen in that case? I understand that TCher and Jam's McLeod are 'out' now, but I can't help but think that somehow, they'll be named anyway.
    If I'm right, good for the sport.
    If I'm wrong, good for their integrity for sticking to the policy.

      TCher and McLeod are both out! Jamaica could have given McLeod an exemption for being injured before their Trials. But once he competed, he had to be in their top three. Kenya had the option to add TCher after the Trials, because their selection process allows it. The Kenya selectors opted to choose Kipsang over TCher for the final spot. It's a done deal now!

        I'm sure you're right, but since I'm not from Missouri, I'll not . . . not believe it when I see it (their team announcement on WA).

          76 athletes: 41 men and 35 women

          As usual, total dominance by the armed forces groups with only 12 civilians (7 men and 5 women).

          They took basically everybody.

          They have been generous also in the number of people nominated for the relays, especially for the 4x400s. It is clear that for some it is a "free trip" to Tokyo as they won't run all.

          Some of the names in the relays teams (Manenti, Galvan) look to have passed their time and maybe it could have a good occasion to try with some of newcomers (even if they would end up as alternates).

          Linda Olivieri has been preferred to Folorunso in the 400hs. Olivieri was well-placed in the ranking (due to 2021 performances) but didn't achieve the entry standard. Folorunso had the entry standard from 2019 but she had disappointing result in 2021 (finishing behind also Pedroso at Nationals last weekend). Folorunso is still in the 4x400 pool.

          Yassine Rachik is in. There has been issues with the medical clearance. I am not entirely sure about the situation as probably not everything has been reported. His club (the police) didn't give him the medical clearance. They considered him as a police agent on medical leave which means he can't leave home from 9 to 13 and from 15 to 18 on week-days. His training team produced medical advices from other doctors. The issue was discussed at federal meeting last Sunday.

          De Luca selected instead of Chiesa in the 50km.

              Australia selects 63 athletes for third largest ever team behind 2000 (87) and 1956 (75). Nic Bideau is most successful coach with 7 athletes on the team and only 8 other coaches with 2 or 3 athletes.

                    If a player on the submitted squad list is injured or ill before his team's first match of the tournament, that player can be replaced if both the team doctor and a doctor from the UEFA Medical Committee coursework uk confirm that the injury or illness is severe enough to prevent the player from playing in the tournament.

                      Was hoping Tortu would also do the 200.

The beauty of their selection system is that they can choose an athlete like Hughes if something happens during the Olympic Trials. Kenya has the same system and they botched their decision not to pick Timothy Cheruiyot in the 1500m. Kenyan politics got in the way of making the right decision, which was a no brainer!

                      Yeah pardon my ignorance. I wasn't keen on different countries having different selection methods. I was stuck in the simple, make top 3 at the trials you make the team.

                          Also an IG post from Christophe Lemaitre stating he’s disappointed not qualifying for the 200 team and being left off the 4x100 squad.
