No it’s not unfair. Our Olympic Trials is stronger and deeper than the majority of Gold Label events, which is the easiest way to qualify for the Olympics. There are no Gold Label marathons in the US, although 3 WMMs. It’s not an unreasonable request to ask for our Trials to be labeled, esp with the late disclosure of the IAAF procedures. The Trials have been planned with financial, media, and sponsor contractual agreements for over a year.
