With the start of many of the key domestic meets such as this weekend's Mt. SAC and Kansas Relays, next weekend's Penn and Drake Relays and the major collegiate conference championships around the corner, here is the first update to the list of Washington affiliated athletes who have achieved the Olympic Games "A" standard, which was published on February 29th.

The Olympic Games A & B standards can be accessed through this link here.

The qualifying period for the Olympics began May 1, 2011, and ends July 8, 2012. For US athletes, it essentially means they have to get the standard at or before the Olympic Trials in order to go to London.

Here's a link to the qualifying standards for the US Olympic Trials.  Note in many cases, the Olympic Games standards are tougher than the standards to gain entry into the Olympic Trials.

Updated marks since February 29th are noted in red.

As always, please leave a note in the comments section if there's anyone we missed/overlooked/have an incorrect mark...thanks!
