That's a good point too and I've updated the article. Originally I assumed that the OT standard and the old Olympic standard were the same, but the Olympic standard was actually a minute faster, as you said. So that change affects three guys.

the #s might be slightly off guys- for instance Joe Moore already has the OTQ with a 1:03 half. He wouldn't be a "new" qualifier. I didn't scan the whole list but there may be a few others included who have already qualified through half timesYou are right. I updated the article.
Good article but some factual errors:
Tyler McCandless and Scott McPherson have qualified for the trials.
Tyler ran 2:15:26 at 2014 Twin Cities
Scot ran 2:16:02 at 2013 Twin Cities
