Kristina Knott of the Philippines recently set a new national record of 11.27 last year outside the Penn Relays’ qualifying periods. In the process beating top-ranked Tianna Bartoletta, the reigning Olympic Long Jump Champion and frequent USA Women’s 4×100.

11.27 performance ranks Knott 27th in the world in 2020 or 20th if we consider three athletes per country, which could see Knott with a good chance of qualifying for the 200 meters. She started off her season with a 7.32 National Indoor Record in the 60 Meter Dash at the KMS Invite on January 24 in Birmingham, Alabama.

  19. Daniel Whyte 22.79


Not 1 but 2 from the Philippines have a chance of qualifying.

But who will be the first Filipino woman to break 23 seconds?

Kristina Knott of the Philippines, the SEA Games 200m Champion, and SEA Record Holder lead the chances of qualifying for this event, having twice broken the Philippine Record with 23.07 and 23.01 2019 SEA Games in New Clark City, Philippines. Knott ran an 11.27 at Penn State last year during COVID. We assume she runs both 100-meter legs/split times in 11.27, which is not the case; this will usually be 0.5 seconds slower; is it instead, t? I will read that 22.80 is within reach if she gets into a good race under the right conditions.


Zion Corrales-Nelson
Zion Corrales-Nelson


The other potential qualifier is Zion Corrales-Nelson. Nelson held the 200M National Record before Knott, with times of 23.24 and 23.16.

She set the record earlier in 2019, whereas Kristina broke it at the end of 2019.

Just 22 years of age, Zion has represented the Philippines in international meets since she was 15 and is now a member of the powerhouse USC team.

Knott ranked 75th in the world in 2019; Nelson ranked 114th.

If we consider the 3 per country rule, Knott ranked 38th in the world in 2019. Zion ranked 56th.


Marathon Womens Olympic Qualifying Update

The Olympic Qualifying Period was

  1.  1 January 2019 to 5 April 2020
  2. 1 December 2020 to 31 May 2021

The Marathon Women’s event is overflowing with a total of 79 Qualifiers for 75 slots.


Now Does this mean they will take the top 75 times? or they will take 79 qualifiers, plus whoever else hits the standard of 2h29.30 by May 1, 2021.


This means all slots are taken with an excess of 4. ABSOLUTELY NO WILD CARDS, IAAF POINTS, OR BONUS ENTRIES AT ALL.

The Olympic Standard going from 2h43 to 2h45 to 2h29.30 may not be even tough enough due to the overflow of athletes in this event, unlike any other women’s event for the 2021 Qualifying. They might need to make the standard 2h28 or even 2h27 for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. 

It’s staggering to think how many more women might qualify by May 1.

Such is the depth in countries such as Kenya that defending Olympic Champion Jemima Sumgong could not qualify in the top 3 for her country.


The Breakdown is as follows

  • 14 countries had 3 athletes or more qualify (some of them have declared there 3 athletes, some of them had more than 3 qualify and are yet to decide), a total of 42 athletes.
  • 20 countries had 2 athletes qualify a total of 20
  • 18 countries had 1 athlete qualify (because Russia is banned); this is a total of 17
  • So up a total of 79 athletes have qualified for 75 slots.

Christine Hallasgo, touted by PATAFA President Philip Juico as a chance to qualify for Tokyo, has the best time of 2h52.53, 23 minutes away from the Olympic qualifier of 2h29.30. She now must hit the standard as the event has too many qualifiers to gain entry to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics by May 1.


Pole Vault Women’s Olympic Qualifying Update

Anicka Newell of Canada added the most recent qualifying performance in the Women’s Pole Vault, clearing the Olympic qualifying mark of 4.70m on January 2 at the Expo Explosion in Belton, Texas.

Newell beat Canadian Record Holder Alysha Newman (4.65m), who had already qualified for the Olympics. The 27-year-old Newell beat her PB from 3 years ago in San Marcos, Texas.


The Olympic Qualifying Period was

  1. 1 May  2019 to 5 April 2020
  2. 1 Dec 2020 to 29 June 2021


Women’s Athletics Olympic Qualified Update : Below is a list of who has made the standard so far.

Please note a total of 18 qualifiers. Newell also qualified so 20 of 32 slots. 

As they are banned for 2 years, Minus Russia includes the 2021 Olympics, 20 of 32 slots.

The USA has more than 2 qualifiers but can only pick 3. As 3 athletes per country rule.


The USA can choose 3 between

  1. Katie Nagleotte 4.92m
  2. Sandi Morris 4.91m
  3. Jennifer Suhr 4.85m
  4. Olivia Gruver 4.70m
  5. Morgann Romero 4.70m

Eleni Klaoudi-Pollok of Greece leaped 4.70m, but it was on July 18 outside the qualifying period.

My Prediction is with 18 qualified 25-26 over 4.70m, and then the remaining 6-7 slots will go to the next best with a cut-off mark of about 4.60m.

Natalie Uy of the Philippines ranked #61 last year with 4.26m.

She had leaped 4.30m (outside the qualifying period), which would have ranked her #52= in the world. But the IAAF hadn’t ratified the performance due to officiating.
