Below is a list of Washington affiliated athletes who have achieved qualifying marks for the 2016 US Olympic Track & Field Trials in Eugene, Oregon starting July 1-10, 2016.

Washington affiliated athletes are those who attended high school, college or graduate school in the state of Washington, while professionals are those currently training in the state.

This list will be updated monthly, and hopefully more frequently as we get closer to the Trials.  This list does not include the walks.

All qualifiers achieved their marks after May 1, 2015. Athletes have until June 26th to qualify for the US Olympic Track & Field Trials.

Any new additions since the last list was published on May 4th are indicated in red.  Athletes added and/or have improved marks since the last list was published include Alexa Efraimson (w 800), Jessica Tebo (w 5000), Ginnie Crawford (w 100H), Jamie Cheever & Mel Lawrence (w Steeple), and Jordin Andrade (m 400H).

Andrade is a Bonney Lake HS grad, who was second at last year’s NCAA 400 hurdles for Boise State, and holds a Cape Verde passport. His 49.24 at last year’s NCAA meet is under the 49.40 Olympic standard.  He ran a season best 49.52 on May 15th to win the Guadeloupe Invitational.

EDIT:  For those of you reading this on a mobile device, we've found out that there's an issue with Scribd cutting off the final page of the document (4 pages long).  Hoping to have a fix for that...apologies in advance.  It is fine reading it on a computer.


One addition to this list is the addition of foreign athletes with Washington ties achieving the Olympic A standard. Depending on their country’s qualification process, they may be selected by their federation to compete at the Olympics, or may have to compete in qualifying trials selection meets.

As always, corrections, additions, etc., are welcome.
