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 April 17th are noted in red, including meet where mark was set.
The next update to this list will be sometime after the NCAA championships and before the US Olympic Trials qualifying period closes on June 17th.
As always, please leave a note in the comments section if there's anyone we missed/overlooked/have an incorrect mark...thanks!
