In exceptional circumstances athletes from the Under 18 and Under 17 age groups who are in line for selection to the season’s major international championship will also be accepted via agreement with their national event coach.
Certain athletes will have qualified in two (or more) events and may only see their name listed in one. This is because we offer you what is assumed is to be your preferred event but we are agreeable to switch you to another if you so wish.

Hand timed performances in the 100m, 200m, and sprint hurdles THAT ALSO HAVE A LEGAL WIND SPEED will be accepted as qualifying performances – as will times in mixed races. We appreciate that many horizontal jumps competitions take place without wind gauges and as such will accept them as qualifiers – provided the athlete has reasonable back up marks.
