    OT final:
    1- Cunningham - 1.96
    2 - McPherson, 3 - Greene & 4 - McCoy - 1.93

    Butts-Townsend - 1.82 in qualifying round
    Rowe - NH in qualifying round

    By virtue of her NH in qualifying, Rowe eliminated herself from consideration because she did not establish a place finish.

    Cunningham goes by virtue of having the standard and winning the OT
    McCoy is also in by virtue of having the standard

    In the final WA rankings, Butts-Townsend was #30, McPherson & Greene were not in the top 32
    gm, what is with the claim that some athletes are able to use marks from 2018? Inika has made this claim in several of her social media videos.

    Also, USATF, according to Inika, said that Ty "took a jump", and therefore gained her eligibility. How is this any different for Rowe? I understand the NH, but language matters, especially in issues that could see the inclusion of a lawyer... and I'm not insinuating anything, just bringing up a point.

    This whole Road to Tokyo page seems to have been taken down. At least for now.

    I say jump off in the middle of Times Square. Primetime television.

    The controversy is that McPherson is not currently ranked high enough, but if USATF declined Butt-Townsend's invite, McPherson would be ranked high enough. She is the next person on the rankings list from all countries.

    This definitely came up in the discussions on this message board as a scenario that was not clearly addressed, and I think the handful of people here who understood the scenario prayed that it wouldn't happen.

    The Women’s High Jump Results:
    1.Vashti Cunningham 6-5
    2.Inika McPherson 6-4
    3.Nicole Greene 6-4 – set a personal record
    4.Rachel McCoy 6-4

    The Olympic team will be Vashti, Rachel, and Ty Butts Townsend. These three ladies have made the Olympic standard of 6-5. However, Ty jumped only 5-11 ½ at the trials and failed to make the finals. I’m not sure what year Ty jumped 6-5 it may have been 2019.

    Questions:
    Who’s making this decision?
    If it’s a committee vote - Can the committee enter someone who hasn’t made the Olympic qualifying standard?
    With three ladies clearing 6-4 – how does someone who cleared only 5-11 ½ makes this Olympic team?

    If you feel this selection process can be improved, please share your recommendations.

    I think the qualifying period goes back to 2019.

    By my records (& research), the best HJ by Tynita Butts (-Townsend) is 6-4 (1.93), which she's reached a few times!
    Her best in 2021 is 6-2.25.
    Where do you get a 6-5 for her?

    Also, unless USATF is going to add her (or has added her), I don't see her name on the list for Tokyo!

    What were the rules for selection going in to the OT?
    If the decision was based on the rules, then McPherson and Greene have nothing to complain about, given they never met the Olympic standard.
