    That's what one would hope of all federations. If an athlete is young and close to getting the auto qualifier anyways that would work for the OGs, the experience could prove to be invaluable.

    Neither NZ nor Australia would ever select weak qualifiers just because they managed to win the Oceanias.

    If everyone agrees thats the case, then the real question becomes which federations are likely to actually take advantage of these somewhat "weak" qualifiers.

    I think there's a number of European federations that set their own qualifying criteria. Poland has tougher qualifying marks than the IAAF's ones in many events, as well as a shorter qualifying period and (at least formally) a requirement to achieve the standard twice.

    She won't. She tore her achilles at the NYC DL, and Beijing is definitely out of the question.

    Kerri Gallager is now selected.

    I don't have a rule for breaking ties. The athletes who find the program first will be displayed first in the list.

    In the women's 1500 Kerri Gallagher should be shown as S,Q as she was third in the USATF champs.

    I don't think every single woman on the list will be entered. Justyna Kasprzycka for one is out with an injury.
