"A" and "B" Standards
"A" - athletes who attain the "A" standard will automatically be included in the event. *
"B" - athletes who attain the "B" standard will be included in the event only if additional competitors are needed to fill the stated field size (i.e. not enough athletes have attained the "A" standard). *
 
* - subject to the Qualifying Guidelines, entry process, and declaration process. If the "B" standard is used, only the number of athletes needed to fill the stated field size will be included in the event. These athletes must declare, and they will be selected for inclusion after the close of declarations based on their qualifying mark.

Qualifying Guidelines

  1. All qualifying performances for running events must be made on a standard indoor or a 400m outdoor track.
  2. Qualifying marks must be made and verifiable in one of the following:
    1. USATF- or IAAF-sanctioned events,
    2. collegiate meets, or
    3. high school meets, except duals and triangulars.
  3. All qualifying marks from outdoor competitions must be attained on or after Friday May 4, 2001 through Sunday June 16, 2002. Qualifying marks from indoor competitions must be attained on or after Saturday December 1, 2001.
  4. A 3% altitude allowance, on the standard, is permitted for track events of 1500 meters or longer, contested at a facility 4000 feet, or more, above sea level.
  5. Fully automatic timing (F.A.T.) is the only method of timing acceptable for qualifying marks for events equal to or shorter than 800 meters.
  6. A manual time may be used for qualifying for events of 1500 meters and longer only if no F.A.T. qualifying time exists for the race during the qualifying period. A manual time may not supersede any F.A.T. qualifying time for an event. Qualifying manual times, for eligible events, are always the F.A.T. qualifying time minus the last zero.
