Universality places have lower priority, so they come after the target number

 

 

So for example it could be 48 qualify direct for 800m and than say 5 universality bringing the total to 53?

 

Its just I dont see where on the qualifying document it says this.

 

For Doha Ireland nearly lost a place because a bigger mumber of universality places opted for the 800m. The number qualifying was limited to a TOTAL of 48.

In theory it should be so. If you read the document, universality places are treated in a different part from other ways of qualification and it is not stated that they are limited by target number. However, it is also written that a NOC can enter its best RANKED male or female athlete, so this can be considered as qualification through ranking, and this would lead to limitation by target number. It will all depend on what happens with qualification through standards and how many double starters will be

And what if more than 48 athletes will meet the standard? I know it's unlikely to happen, but still


I am unashamed, at getting nothing done.

Oh, he's a former doper, too. Excellent.

 

11 career marathons, all of which were in South Korea, so at least more legit than the Kenyans who compete for Bahrain and then test positive
