  • 2019 USATF Entries [start lists now posted]

    The entry/declaration status page is here.

    http://www.usatf.org/Events---Calend...f-Entries.aspx

    Why is everyone listed as "not qualified" that I am guessing have declared listed as "not accepted". There is clearly room to fill many of the fields in question.

          Allowing maximum time for qualifying seems like a reasonable idea, but I have always wondered what the people on the "bubble" (might qualify might not) think about this process. Not knowing you are in the meet until three or four days before the meet starts seems like a logistical nightmare.

              Purrier scratched the 1500 only running the 5000. Makes sense as the 5000m team is way easier to make.

                How incomplete are the lists? I don't see Evan Jager in the steeple. He's had injury but recently was still planning to compete:

                  Entry deadline has passed. Others around here are very tuned into the process, but I would have a tendency to believe at this point he is not planning to compete.

                    It sucks and always causes problems. They should cut everything off a week earlier than they do.

                      If athletes are on the fence about competing, it is far easier to enter early and scratch, than it is to try to petition in late.

                      Anyone with the USATF standard is "qualified", anyone without the standard is "not qualified", then once declarations are finished and the qualifying window closed, they work down the list and accept declared "not qualified" people until they hit the target field size.

                      If you are an athlete on the bubble hoping to hit a big mark at a last chance meet, you enter and then hope to be able to update that mark and get in.

                          If I missed a news note on her I apologize but what has happened to Raven Saunders? She threw once in April but nothing since and is not entered as of yet.

                            Just going to throw some names out there with some question marks.
                            Ariana Washington?
                            Hannah Cunliffe?
                            Jasmine Stowers?
                            Aries Merritt?
                            Charlene Lipsey?
