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.

This will be the next-to-last list published before 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.

For those of you reading this on a mobile device, we are aware of an issue with Scribd cutting off parts of the document, which is 4 pages long. We apologize in advance; however, there are no issues reading from a computer.
Two additions to this list are 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.
The other addition is a set of numbers to the right of each event name, which indicates the approximate field size (not the minimum), and the number of rounds in each event.
For the purposes of this list, I have not added any athletes who are just short of the automatic standards, but are likely to be added, per USATF rule 11.3 (b) concerning adding athletes to make a competitive field.
As always, corrections, additions, etc., are welcome.
