    This event has zero auto qualifiers, but on the road-to-rio.com site Johnson, McCullough and Kruger are currently 23, 25 and 26th on the qualifying list, all in line for an IAAF invitation. The potential for controversy/confusion would occur if someone threw well enough (currently 32nd on the list is 76.18) to been in line for a qualifier and finished ahead of one of the three currently on the list. The rules (as I understand them) would imply then that order at the trials would have precedence over order on the qualifying list, but who the heck knows what would actually transpire.

        Start list says top 9 to finals. So I guess since this is back to back this is not a proper/normal qualifying round then a final with 6 throws. I am assuming this is 3 in the prelim and then 3 in the final? Can someone clarify.

          If you're right, donley, then it's patently NOT fair---or good idea!!
          The 9 FINALISTS should get 6 attempts----AFTER the Q round!!

            I went back and looked at what was done in 2012 and it was your basic NCAA style final with all 6 throws counting. So frankly is not really a prelim and a final it is just a final with a cutdown from 24 to 9 after three throws.

              It is a regular competition. There is no qualifying round, just flights followed by a final with nine folks in it.

                      Of course they were all in the top four but Womens HT good example of what can happen in rounds 5 and 6.

                        Then why is it called a qualifying round in the timetable on the USATF website?

                            I think that he has an injury to his front side (pectoral?). Didn't seem to be able to either rotate well or put much power in to the throws.

                            Here is his comment:

                            "I did something to my collarbone last week and for some reason it didn't feel right. It's definitely hurting now after my throws today."
