It doesn't quite work like that... read through the qualifying system here: and here: .
First, multiple American men have run under the standard of 2:11:30 on a legal course since Nov. 1, 2022 (my understanding is Boston counts for world rankings but not for time qualification, someone correct me if I'm wrong):
Teshome MEKONEN 2:11:05 Houston
Elkanah KIBET 2:10:43 Prague
Futsum ZIENASELLASSIE 2:09:40 Rotterdam
Abbabiya SIMBASSA 2:10:34 Prague
Leonard KORIR 2:09:31 Paris
Second, the U.S. should almost definitely have three men placing high enough in the "filtered" world rankings to qualify.
Third, "Any national Olympic committee may choose to reallocate a quota place to an unqualified athlete, provided the athlete in the qualification window has achieved at least a 2:11:30 (men) or 2:29:30 (women) performance."
ETA: To summarize, for an American man to be able to go to the Olympics he will either have to be ranked higher than the 65th quota spot or have a 2:11:30 to be eligible to replace a quota spot. The point is the 2:08 that people are referring to doesn't matter that much.
