Men's 10000m

:BDI Olivier Irabaruta - 27:55.92

 

Already 6th Burundian athlete to qualify! They will have a very impressive team for their standards, they never had more than 7 athletes.

Men's Triple Jump

 

:MEX Alberto Alvarez - 16.99 (NR, WL)

 

I'm so glad of this result, because he had already obtained the Olympic standard some days ago, but stupid Mexican federation set higher standards (as if there were enough Mexican athletes to achieve the ones set up by IAAF); I pray that this does not result in a doping case :pope:

Women's Marathon:

 

Anja Scherl at the Hamburg-Marathon: 2:27,50h This is the German standrad.

Some background to her:

She set up her previous PB of 2:36.31! last year in Hamburg and works 40 hours a week as software developer!

Some perspective about the german olympic qualification:

4 girls now have the standard, the "funny" thing is that the Hahner twins (Anna and Lisa) already thought that they were safe for Rio, but now we have 2 faster girls, Fate Tola and Anja Scherl, so it would be unfair to nominate both Hahner twins. I think german federation should nominate Tola, Scherl and Lisa Hahner.

Lisa Hahner has won the German Championships. As German Champion, she is qualified. Fate Tola is not yet german, though she may become german very soon, in which case she'll probably be nominated for Rio.
