RE: 25 Americans now have the Olympic standard in marathon but won't be at the Trials. Should USATF let them in?

You're right. The list I was using was missing a few guys.

Worth noting, though: the Olympic qualifying window opened January 1. So anyone who hasn't broken 2:19 since then doesn't have the Olympic standard.[quote]

So should USATF only have to let in guys between 2:18 and 2:19 who have run that time since Jan 1st?


That is another question we are trying to figure out. We had a guy who ran 2:18:xx last year email us because he's wondering if he's going to be able to get in now. Hopefully USATF can decide on this quickly because it's going to affect a bunch of people's training plans one way or another.
