  • Where's The Bubble In OT Qualifying?

    ("bubble," if you're not familar with the terminology, means the dividing line between who is last in a descending list of qualifiers and who is first among the non-Q's... the last qualifier is "on the bubble" until the Q is over)

    Unofficial list of where the Q's stood in all events before this weekend now posted to the front page.

    With the big conference meets, the NCAA Regionals and National Championships, and meets like adidas, Reebok-NYC, and Pre still to be contested in the next month, most of those bubble marks are going to get quite a bit lower (in the track events) and higher/longer (in the field events) before the Trials.

        note: these listings are UNOFFICIAL; the official entry lists are maintained by USATF.
        which, I'm assuming, are NOT on the web (or you would have just linked to them), which begs the question (second usage), why not? Wouldn't that be very helpful info for everyone?

          Wheating, 1:46.83 is getting close to the 'above the line' status, and the women's JT probably needs and entry at the top at 202, except that the women's list needs EVERYTHING, since it is blank.

            Must be something funky w/ your browser; I'm having to trouble seeing it.

              One good thing I see on these lists. The only event (after a quick scan) that might have very little drama at the olympics trials is the mens javelin (with 3 A qualifiers). All the others have either 1 or 4 or more.

                There's a decent chance that there could be another A standard qualifier in the men's jav before the Trials, which would put the element of drama back. (Actually, there are a couple of guys close enough that the drama could come when they hit the A standard in the Trials.)

                Conversely, Marks or Welsch cold get their A in the women's TJ, and that could remove the element of drama. We're not likely to get up to 4 A's in that event.

                  You did not see the 202 in the wJT? Try the Big Ten meet.

                    Of course they are online: http://www.usatf.org/events/2008/Olympi ... status.asp

                    Because most of the athletes haven't entered yet, so those lists are boring at this point. Many wait until the last minute. It's always more interesting to see who is eligible to enter, then after the deadlines pass see who actually enters.

                    Plus even if the athletes enter, they may not declare. And then there is the appeal period.

                    I maintain lists of the eligible pole vaulters here:

                      Reedus Thurmond threw 61.42 in the discus last year, I think at one of our all-comers meets. His mark isn't on USATF's yearly list for some reason (probably was never submitted) but you can see it on the entries for last year's nationals http://www.usatf.org/events/2007/USAOut ... -06-24.asp and this year's OT http://www.usatf.org/events/2008/Olympi ... status.asp

                      Will Conwell threw a SB in Maui this past weekend.

                      You're missing some pole vaulters, but you can see those from my lists. I define 08 as beginning 1/1/08 though, since USATF's definition is for seeding purposes and doesn't make much of a difference in the pole vault.

                            That listing says that it is as of 1/1/08. Not very helpful now.
