Also, any news in the women's 50km race walk entrys?

 

Inês Henriques and Erin Talcott both confirmed they would compete, but what about the other three girls that matched criteria?

Has Henriques definitely been confirmed as an entrant?

Her qualifying time was set in a race that wasn't approved as a qualifying competition so the IAAF would have to change the rules to get her in.

Well, her time there was ratified as a World record. Makes no sense that it doesn't count for qualification. :dunno:

I'm sure they will change the rules to allow her to compete.

And maybe the Brazilian will also be allowed to race (as the best South American) - making a maximum of 6

According to portuguese press, Inès is compiting in 50km:

Well I hope the 2 chinese athletes and the brazilian compete. In my opinion IAAF should open their hand a little bit and invite up to 10 athletes, at least for having an accepting number...

Or, like Evan Dunfee suggested, tell all 20km competitors they can start in the 50 if they want. It's not perfect, but surely there are several who'd like to give it a try.

Not triying to brag about anything, but in Spain we have the women's team selected since April, and about 8 women with the 20km standard that weren't chosen. If just they new there was another chance they probably would had try it.

 

Like the 1500 race that has her own mark for mille races, IAAF could have done the same and say "If you have under 1,30 in 20km you can get listed for 50km", for example.
