RE: New 2020 Olympic Standards Posted - They Are WAY Tougher - Will US Olympic Trials take a hit?
The US style of having trials for everything seems so odd when you come for a country which simply has sent the three fastest athletes that beat the minimum qualifying standard. It puts so much additional strain on runners having to squeeze in an extra marathon. It seems entirely useless. Rank them after time and send the best ones.

Can someone explain me the American obsession with Olympic trials?
