2015 World Champs Policy and Selection Update

E-mail Print

This is an update to the many questions around the new selection process for the 2015 IAAF World Championship qualifying marks based on the year-end-rankings list. 

The rules are, that if an athlete does not make the standard, the IAAF will select athletes from the year-end-rankings list to fill the quota set for each event (each event has a different quota to fill). After the entries have closed on midnight on the 10th of August the IAAF will notify federations of those athletes who have been selected by their “ranking” to fill the event quota.  Our policy allows Athletics Ireland to consider and confirm those athletes that are invited.
