    Very useful.

    Is 2015 the 1st time the IAAF filled the fields to thirty-two?

    I think the procedure I read said the federations have 24 hours to say yes or no as to whether they accept the invitation. So indeed if every go round they invite the minimum number of people it could drag on for several days.

That way as soon as all federations have sent their selections, the IAAF knows exactly which athletes to invite.
    That's one way. I predict this year's hot-mess protocol gets significantly amended for the next iteration.

    That's just what I was wondering. The IAAF will have to be putzing with the lists till the end, as they find out people they've invited won't be going.

    Making sense of it isn't hard from the fan's point of view. I'm more concerned about the logistics of it. If the invitations are sent only to the exact number of athletes needed to reach the target number, then as the federations refuse some of the invitations, the process will have to be repeated many times.

    I'm guessing quite a few "nS" would have to be removed to be more accurate, but we lack the information. Once a federation has announced it's team anyone not on it gets an nS. Some countries have specifically added info on which athletes would be selected if invited by the IAAF, most have not. So like everything else in the lists, the "nS" is a guideline, not final.

    Athletics Australia have just announced their roll-down additions to the Beijing team:

    Ryan Gregson (1500m) Heidi See (1500m) James Nipperess (SC) added with Jeff Risely (1500m) and Anneliese Rubie (400m) getting additional starts

    http://athletics.com.au/News/beijing-2015-123

    There may be more if athletes from other countries decline.

    The new system is not so bad to follow (tho Rob & crew's list help considerably) and there are probably thousands of athletes from the past 30 years who wish it had been in force when they missed selection.

    I just wish the relay fields were expanded to 24 entries.

    Good to know. Has iaaf already released their entry lists for each event or will that be next week ?
