      I didn't mind the B standard when it came to the Men's Long Jump.

      With the current single standard, only 13 male athletes would have the LJ qualifying mark this year (and only 9 in 2013, 11 in 2012).

          This is probably where GH points out the various rule changes in the PV.....

            Where does it say that? I don't think the US qualifies as a separate area.

              At LA 1984, the 2015 WC standards would have won:
              Gold - 10000m - Cova 27:47.54
              Silver - PV - Tully 5.65 (Vigneron 5.60)
              Bronze - TJ - Connor 16.87
              Bronze - 100H - Chardonet & Turner 13.06

                And no, I'm not saying they WOULD make the team, if eligible!!
                Huh? McLaughlin was born in 1999; no reason why she should be ineligible.
                Athletes aged 16 or 17 years on 31 December 2015 (born in 1998 or 1999) may compete in any event except the throwing events, the combined events, 10,000m, marathon and the race walks.

                  The 10,000 can go fast throughout, slow and then fast, or slow, slow, then very fast. The marks from Viren are faster than that, so it is a function of the race and how it develops. For the vault, the wind and weather (rain) can have a big effect.

                    Thanks! Should've looked up her B-date before commenting!!
                    So thanks for the correction!

                      note, by the way, that any time they mention "rankings" that means yearly lists, not any actual ranking-mechanism of any kind.

                        Now I'm really confused. I just read in T&FN that only the top 4 USATF finishers get to chase. I thought it was ANY finisher. Did I miss this discussion?!

                          Me too, very confused...

                          I could not find specific mention of only the "top 4" being able to chase thru Aug. 9 in this detailed USATF document, it talks of "All finishers in events at the Trials, who have not achieved the IAAF World Championships Qualifying Standard for that event, may “chase” the standard after the Trials.", but maybe I read that out of context.
                          http://www.usatf.org/Events---Calend...rocedures.aspx

                          However, this USTAF document (I'm not sure which was posted first, USATF does not seems to put timestamps/dates on these documents, so one does not know if you are viewing the latest version?) states "Please remember that when chasing the qualifying mark only athletes in the top 4 may chase." It does not specifically mention the top four finishers (whereas the above document mentions all finishers at Trials).
                          http://www.usatf.org/Events---Calend...rocedures.aspx

                          So yes, I hope someone can explain to me what I'm missing?

                            Page 12 of the March TFNews is a "How do the WC Standards work" section. In that explanation it says the desired field sizes are not yet announced. However this document
                            https://iaafmedia.s3.amazonaws.com/c...928c58a097.pdf contains specific "target" field sizes. Are these not in fact the final desired field sizes? The final questions would be. Are the list positions that determine whether you are in or out the position on August 10th or some other date? And are these combined indoor/outdoor lists?

                              Since the outdoor season is now upon us and we see talk about Rio qualifying thought I would bump this. So in addition to the questions I have above, I was also curious what events qualified as official "regional championships" that earned you a qualifier

                                For the 8 relay teams that qualify by "top lists", do they take the best time or the best two times divided by two?
