  • Is there a startlist for the WAF in Greece?

    I don't think there's ever been a start list for the WAF this far in advance.

      yeah, the contestants stay fluid longer than normal as people (particularly those on the fringes) whether or not it's worth one more meet for what will probably be bottom-end money. (or in a few cases, the top-end money)

          JW not listed in the 400. Did he shut down for the season?

              to save you another click-through from the previous URL, this takes you right to the PDF, sans intro material:

                Yes! Sanya is running the 200! (Not thinking she'll win but I think she can run a good time; perhaps PR)

                Come on Felix, double and run the 400. (again, would love to see Felix PR and snatch the #2 ranking)

                  The women's 800 - sad?

                  TD in the 5k, hope she's healthy; will not face Defar whose running the 3k.

                  Looking forward to the women's 400h. This race may decide the #1 ranking. Demus has had the better season as a whole, but Walker laid it down at the WC.

                    I see Defar's name listed in the 5000m in addition to the 3000m in the PDF linked above, though I'd be surprised if she did both.

                      I wouldn't. She's done it before. Actually, she won both races last year.

                        Just going through the Standings list versus the Entry list.

                        100m Men
                        #2 Daniel Bailey, #3 Usain Bolt and #8 Travis Padgett are not on the start list. #9 Michael Rodgers, #10 Simeon Williamson, #11 Monzavous Edwards takes their spots.

                        200m Men
                        #8 Tyson Gay is not on the start list. #9 St├ęphane Buckland takes his spot (Shinji Takahira is joint-#9)

                        100m Women
                        The three women tied at #6 Sheri-Ann Brooks, Veronica Campbell-Brown and Stephanie Durst are not on the list. Co-#9 Kelly-Ann Baptiste and LaVerne Jones-Ferrette plus #11 Lauryn Williams take their spots.

                        200m Women
                        #6 Bianca Knight is not on the start list. #41 Sanya Richards takes her spot.

                        Question in regard to the 200m Women; what of the women that are #9 (#7 & #8 are on the list) to #40 in the standings? I have no objection to Richards being on the start list but am curious about the criteria for selection. The other sprints seem to use position in the tour standings to fill spots vacated by any of the top 8, the 200m for Women obviously did not.
                        Regards,

                          I am pretty sure in the past the IAAF had the option of picking one person not in the top 8 for each event (and by definition bumping the bottom person). I think it is actually spelled out on the WAF rules as well. I am too lazy to verify it right at the moment.

                              This is true. The Top 7 (Top 11 for 1500m and over) in each event are automatically qualified, the IAAF can pick anyone for the last spot no matter how many points he collected over the course of the season.
