Athletes must have completed and submitted Attachment B as a condition of selection. Until Craig confirms he submitted the required paperwork this is a non-issue.
As usual, the USATF rules are very badly written. For instance, they say "nominated" athletes have to sign the statement.
1.1.4 Nominated athletes are required to sign a USA Track & Field Statement of Conditions for participation.
That phrasing suggests that first you are nominated, then you sign the statement.
The only reference to a date or a form on the USATF web page for the Pan-Am is this:
7.8. DATE OF NOMINATION
The Nomination of Athletes form, including replacements, will be announced to all athletes and submitted to the USOC on or before:June 29, 2015
Again, this makes it clear that USATF is doing the nominating.
The one place the rules mention athletes applying, or giving notice to the USATF, it is in the discussion of athletes withdrawing from team, etc. AFTER they have been nominated.
As I mentioned above, the general rule is that athletes are selected based on their performance as the Nationals. This isn't the case for marathoners, yet there is no discussion of any other procedure for determining who is eligible.
SO AGAIN: What is the deal with paperwork??? Does anyone know if marathoners have to submit paperwork expressing their desire to be considered for the team?
