* F.A.T is the only method of timing acceptable for qualifying marks for events listed with an asterisk. Times submitted in hudredths of a second must be fully automatic times.

** A manual time may be used for qualifying in events with a double asterisk only if no fully automatic qualifying time exists for the individual in that event during the qualifying period. A manual time may not supercede any fully automatic qualifying time for an event.  Qualifying manual times, for eligible events, not already listed, are always the FAT qualifying time without the last zero. Manual times will be converted for seeding purposes using USATF Rule 76.
