    In the W 5000, Laura Whittle's 14:34 was really 15:34, so she should be 30th, not 3rd, and on the bubble.

    surprisingly, they didn't use the 1.08 in crafting the qualifying standards (close, but not quite)

    or the well established 1.08 conversion factor

    I need help with the abbreviations -- AC and TFP particularly.
    AC = Area champion

    TFP = I don't actually know what it stands for, but those are the top three in the IAAF combined events challenge 2014.

    AC is Area Champion (Asian, African, European etc). Note sure about TFP

They have to use two separate world lists, 1500m and the mile, so how do they decide which result is worth more?
    Good question and an apparent defect in the qualifying standards as set out. However, as a matter of logic, I think the IAAF scoring tables would have to be employed for the purpose.

    The quality is even more concentrated in the final, but you don't seem to have a problem with 8 teams running there.

    Thanks, I hope they will add more or at least divide those 16 in 4x400 into three heats. Two semis with 8 could be a mess during exchange.

    Two years ago, all teams which met the qualifying standard could compete. The rules were changed for this edition of the WC.

    As far as I can see, there is no provision in the qualification standards that says the host country has a guaranteed place in all relay events.

    So if China has a guaranteed 4x400 place one team will have to drop out or more than 16 teams will start? In Moscow around 20 teams started in three heats, that's much better. I'm not sure what were the rules two years ago.

    Thanks, updated the list now. I was doing this manually, so if there are any other omissions, please report.
