No, she is still half a minute from the WCH Standard, and there are already 27, (29 to be precise), athletes that have achieved the WCH Standard. The target number is 27, so no room for her. 

But she might start in next year's ECH in Paris on the 10,000m, and with many of the best Europeans focusing on the Olympics, she could have chance to win a medal. Of course this depend on who are actually going to compete in next year's ECH because she is nowhere near a medal if the best starts. 

 

What happens if target number is exceeded during qualification period?

Nothing really. The target numbers are just there to have some sort of maximum limit/cap of athletes at a WCH. 

At the moment these distances and disciplines have more than the target number:

 

Men's 5000m 43 (TN: 42)

Men's High Jump 38 (TN: 32)

Men's Marathon 128 (TN: 100)

Men's 20km Race Walk 63 (TN: 60)

Men's 50km Race Walk 56 (TN: 50)

 

Women's 100m 49 (TN: 48)

Women's 200m 57 (TN: 56)

Women's 10000 29 (TN: 27)

Women's High Jump 34 (TN: 32)

Women's Pole Vault 33 (TN: 32)

Women's Long Jump 35 (TN: 32)

Women's Shot Put 33 (TN: 32)

Women's Heptathlon 25 (TN: 24)

Women's Marathon 127 (TN: 100)

Women's 20km Race Walk 61 (TN: 60)

 

Currently there are 84 athletes more than the target number. However, some federations have a stricter qualification standard than the WCH standard, so the final number will fall.

Where can one find lists for qualification rankings for 2019 (top 3 from each nation only)? Many Czech athletes are relying on ranking to make it through.

If you mean qualification ranking for WCH, this should help you:

Ok, so you group of YouTubers lead (or challenged/offended) by that (insert any word you’d anger want to be called) Logan Paul held a real track and field meet over the weekend. There was a guy who won the 100m in a time of 10.8, which would’ve seen him advance to the final at the 2019 Pacific Games :facepalm: :p

Wow, that sounds like Attention Whore 2.0

Indeed it does.

He even had a boxing match between some UK YouTuber, and to my shock, it was extremelly popular on PPV.
