UPDATE #1: List of Washington affiliated athletes qualified for the US Olympic Track & Field Trials...

With only a handful of meets left around the country before Sunday's final day to qualify for the US Olympic Trials in Eugene that begins on June 22nd (the hammer will be contested on June 21st at Nike world headquarters in Beaverton on Ronaldo Field), here is the updated list of Washington affiliated athletes who have achieved automatic and provisional qualifying marks for the meet.

What we've done is list next to the event--the automatic standard, the provisional standard, the field size and rounds--followed by the names of automatic qualifiers, their marks, and the date they achieved the mark, and provisional qualifiers.  Provisional qualifiers for the trials are listed in red.

In the field events, the qualifying standard is listed in metrics only, though I've put in both imperial and metric marks next to the qualifiers.

Provisional qualifiers are exactly that--provisional. Factors such as scratches, and the need by organizers to fill the field to closely simulate the qualifying rounds in the Olympics will determine which provisional qualifiers get into the meet. In some cases, athletes will not know until 48 hours before their first round of competition whether or not they're in or out.

I've written a preview piece on the top athletes from the state of Washington competing in the Olympic Trials for the July issue of Northwest Runner, which should be out early next week. An updated version of it will be published here AFTER the magazine has been sent to its subscribers and is on the newsstands and running shops where it is sold.  In any event, it will be posted before the start of the meet.

The qualifying period for the US Olympic Trials began May 1st, 2011.  The time schedule for the Trials is available here.

As always, corrections and amendments are welcome. Please leave any corrections, amendments, etc. in the comments section...thanks!
