World Athletics News – IAAF Olympic and World Qualifying Standards in Athletics
The IAAF has released the entry standards for the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, which will take place September 28 through October 6, 2019.
The World Standards announced which are usually the same as the Olympic Standards seem a bit easier. But still tougher than they have been in previous years.
There is a chance the Philippines could be sending a token to World Champs and more likely to Olympics at this rate. The IAAF Rules state that a country with no qualifiers can send one male or one female athlete.
|3:36.00 (3:53.10)||1,500m (Mile)||4:06.50 (4:25.20)|
|1:22:30||20km Race Walk||1:33:30|
|3:59.00||50km Race Walk||4:30:00|
Based on These Standards who do you think will qualify for World Champs from the Philippines?
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
The Olympic Standards look near Impossible now.
A more detailed look or comparisson
ON THE OTHER HAND, WORLD RELAYS LOOKS VERY DOOABLE.
- Men 39.10/ 39.11 last SEA Games (perhaps missing a stronger member Trenten Beram)
- Women 44.20 / 44.81 SEA Games (definitely a stronger cast with Kristina Knott boosting the relay)
