  • USATF World Indoor Champs Team Selection Process

    Shouldn't something like this be published by now? I would think around now would be a good time to publish the process for World Outdoors.

        "The Member Federation of the World Indoor Tour winner will have the ultimate authority to enter the athlete or not, based on its own criteria or qualification system."

        Or they could even go back and say the 2019/2020 world indoor tour winner gets a wild card since they missed out on that chance due to covid. (Strother, Eaton, Clemons and Baker all originally secured wild cards to Nanjing)

          I would imagine they will follow their own outdoor precedent - choose the reigning World Champ over the Wild Card. I'm not sure if that was ever put in writing, but it's what they've done, yes?

            Not for indoors. Indoors I don't think the world champ ever gets a wild card to the next worlds (see donley's reference from the 2020 process). But Just highlighting that the Federation (USATF) can ultimately decide to send whoever they want.

              Ever is a long time. I would not put it past them to try and codify their policies, by doing indoors what they have done outdoors. It makes them look like they know what they're doing by being consistent.
